Leon, this is amazing!!We are family!I am very familiar with Msgr. John Esseff in Scranton, PA, as he keeps in touch with us for various updates on the Khoury family and the annual famil reunions in PA.Do you have the latest updated contact booklet?My father's name is in there under Edward A. George, in Houston, TX.Do you have a copy of the family tree?If so, we are descendants of Asseff who descended from Georges and BuSahd, who was one of 4 sons of Father Anthony.My Grandfather is George, and my father is Edward, and I am Gregory.My brothers are Derek and Edward Jr.
You may reach me at my office at (713) 759-3430 any time.I would love to speak to you.
I have never been to Hardine, although I hope to go soon.My wife, who I met in Fredericton, Canada, is also Lebanese, however unlike me, her parents were born in Lebanon (my father was born in Canada).They go back often, and I would like to accompany them on their next trip.My wife's brother was in Hardine for a party a few years ago.My wife's family is the Antoine family from Barsa (another small villiage in the north of Lebanon).
I have two boys, Edward (after my father)who is 3 1/2 yrs old and Joseph (after my wife's father) who is 2 yrs old.
I have been to the Khoury family renuion in PA only once, but my Father's sister in Allentown, PA (married a Pittsburgh man from the Roman family (John Roman), also from the Father Anthony family tree) goes quite often.Have you been before?Are you on the family tree?What part of California do you live in?I was recently in San Diego for a conference.
