Thanks for your reply. Where do you and your ADES family live? My great grandparents were born in Aleppo, Syria. My grandmother, Freda ADES, was born in Beirut in 1900. Some time shortly after, the family moved to Cairo. They stayed there until the early 1920s and then moved to San Francisco. Did your grandfather, Aaron ADES, have any brothers or sisters? Do you have any knowledge of who his ancestors were?
