Re: Looking for relative in Lebanon

In Reply to: Looking for relative in Lebanon by Pat Gunn Romley of 3600

I have a book called A Brief History Of The Saleeby-Saliba Clan And Their Branches, by Najeeb David Saleeby. It was published in 1950. In it, it mentions a family by the name of "Romellei" that lived in Lebanon. This may or may not be the same family you're looking for, but I'll give you what it says about them any way:

"The Romellei family left Bteghreen in the early years of the nineteenth century to a town called Mjydill, El-Kora. They were nicknamed 'Romellei' because they belonged to the Greek Orthodox Church. The word 'Room' in the Arabic language means Greek Orthodox. They are still called by this name to this day. In fact, they are a branch of the Saliba Family of Bteghreen."
