Re: Fiah Lebanon, El Makdessi (Elias) family

I saw this message and wondered if anyone could help me with my own genealogical research. I'm looking for information on the El Makdessi family from Fih. My great-great Grandfather was Sami El Makdessi (born in the 1870s) in Fih; I know almost nothing about his wife, Saada, who may also have been from Fih. They immigrated to the USA around 1905 and changed their last name to Elias. Their children were Floyd (who married Adele Sleiman from Fih in 1926, I think), Linda (who married Antonios Makdissi from Fih), Sophie (who married a Wehbe, I think also from Fih), Helen, and Mary. I'd like to know more about Sami's family, or if I might have any relatives there who could help me piece together the family lineage or find out more about Saada's family, too. Any help would be appreciated!

Kristen
