Our project will be on descendants of HANANs from the Island of Rhodes in present day Greece. Rhodes passed from Ottoman/Turkish to Italian and finally Greek rule. The HANAN family has a long history on the Island of Rhodes. likely dating back to the 1500s. Several Rhodesli families set up businesses in Megri/Macri/Fethiye, Turkey, during the late 1700s to the early 1900s. Today, the HANANs from Rhodes live throughout the world, especially in the USA (Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, Montgomery, Atlanta, New York), Argentina (Buenos Aires), Brazil, Panama, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Belgium, Egypt, Turkey, and Israel.
The goals of this project are to determine if these HANANs from Rhodes are descended from one couple that arrived in Rhodes during the 1500s (that is, an “Adam and Eve”). We will also clarify the relationships between the HANAN families that lived on Rhodes.
