My cousin has been typing up the Saleeby-Saliba book on a website.I dont know if it is online yet.
Our family has been in New Zealand for over 100 years now, still with strong ties with Dour Shweir.
The intersting thing I found about the family book is that my grandmother was telling us the stories in the book before she had read it, which shows the history has been successfully been handed down "word of mouth".
My Grandfather George Ataya-Saliba was born in Lebanon.
When I find out where the site is on the net I will let you all know. The history goes back to 500BC to the Kings of Sparta.
