Dear Peter, Thanks for your response. Yes Les was my grandfather. I met your parents Victor & Vera in Mackay. They were lovely people. I believe Victor owned a shoe store? I am 49 years of age and live with my wife Patricia, who was a Secondary School teacher,in Brisbane. I am a Civil Engineer with BHP. Years ago I attempted to produce a Batros family tree, got a fair way but stalled due to work commitments. Also I am unsure how the names Batros and Andrews are connected. I would really like to develop the family tree further. Perhaps I could summarise the key details and you and others add to it through followups on this site or via email to me.
Here are some details you might find interesting(might not be completely accurate): Leslie Andrew Batros and Martha ? were the parents of our grandfathers and the following: · Jumilia - married Eli Sarkees [children:Scundra,Elias(Nick),Catherine,Najeeb(John),George,Michael,Bill, Najeebi(Jean)] · Charles(Selim) - Rachael Soad [children:Amelia,Anthony,Eliott,David,Michael,Arthur,Samuel] · John(Amin) - Julia ? [children:Najeebi(Jean),George] · George - Meriana Shehady [children:Alexander(changed surname to Andrews),John,Elias,Sade,Fahrieh] · Rodger(your grandfather) - Saleemy Anthony [children:Olga,Victor(your father),George(changed surname to Peterson),Paul] · Leslie(my grandfather) - Mary Khoury [children:May,Richard,Neville(my father),Violet,Leslie] · Julia - Leslie Siroff [children:Mary,George]
