Genealogy Update 2008
I just wanted everyone to know that I am still working on the family tree, but have hit a road block going any further back than Norman and his brother Khalil. I ESTIMATE their births to have been in the mid 1850's and I'm ASSUMING they were from Tripoli, back when it was part of Syria. There is a big debate within the family on whether the Kogok name is Syrian or Lebanese. I only know that Tripoli became part of Lebanon in 1920 and the rest is politics. It looks like we may have to go to Tripoli to find any further ancestors !!! Meanwhile I am adding decendants to the branches of the tree and branching off of each of them. If you have any information I would GREATLY appreciate it, or if you have any questions I would be happy to share whatever info I can.
