Hello, Thank you for the info, your English is great. Yes, you have helped alot.I was just wondering about the names...and yes you are right, about the French names, because someone have told me about French names used in Lebanon. My great-grandmother's family were Christians, so many of them had French names. I also have an other family memeber who had told me about thename "Issil" I am not sure if I am spelling it right. Someone from told me it was a Turkish girl'sname? but one of my grandmother's family had that name.I was just reading about someone else'smessage on this topic of Lebanese with French names and French Surnames on thismessage board, I will pass on the info to them.Thanks for your help! Wish me luck as I continue my family research!
