Updated September 6, 2000

I am researchin my family tree.AWAD - STEPHAN - SAMNE or SAMNA - ADAM - SOKKAR - KOUSSAYA - KERKOR - BASSILIOS - TANNOUS - ATHANASIADIS - AGOP or YACOUB -These are some of the surnames associated with my family. Their origins are mainly Damascus in Syria, particularly Baab Touma. Some other members of the family originate from Lebanon, but I am not aware of their place of origin.Samne or Samna family left Damascus for Egypt in 1903.We had a fairly strong connection with the Greek Orthodox Church in Damascus with either my maternal grandfather's brother or his nephew having been a Bishop or a Patriarch within that Church .As I find out more names, I will be posting them in this text box.Members of the family have lived in Syria; Lebanon; Egypt particularly in Alexandria, Cairo and Port Said; France particularly St. Etiennes and Paris; Italy particularly Milan; USA particularly Idianapolis and Ohio; Canada particularly Montreal and Quebec. A distant relation did live in the UK, but unsure where. Also in Autralia particuarly Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.Both my parents' families were quite large and hence we have a few relations scattered all over the world.One of my aunts was a nurse who worked in Argentina and Saudi Arabia, she never married.An uncle was a pilot with Egypt Air.Any information would be greatly appreciated.My e-mail is: SPHINX_OA@MSN.COM
