It would be if folks would post their queries to the list. Please post yours and perhaps you can revitalize the board.

KARIMA- I AM A LITTLE CONFUSED AND HOPE THAT YOU CAN SHED SOME LIGHT. I AM AN AMERICAN WHO MARRIED A FIRST GENERATION LEBANESE MAN. I HAVE STARTED WITH HIS ANCESTRY.WHAT A FREAKIN NIGHTMARE. MY F-I-L JAMES S ESPER CAME TO THIS COUNTRY IN 1920 UNDER JAMAL ABOUD, WITH HIS MOTHER,CHAFIPA ABOUD AND HIS SISTERS, ALL UNDER THE ABOUD NAME. CHAPIFA(SOPHIA)'S MAIDEN NAME, I AM TOLD WAS SALIBA.CHAPIFA WAS MEETING HER HUSBAND, WHO HAD IMMIGRATED TO THE USA YEARS BEFORE, AND HIS NAME BECAME SOLOMON ESPER.CANNOT FIND HIS IMMIGRATION...WHERE DID THE ABOUD NAME COME FROM? HOW DID JAMAL ABOUD BECOME JAMES ESPER?WHY WAS NOT SOPHIA'S NAME WHEN SHE CAME TO THE USA, ESPER OR ESBER?

you will find that Aboud was his fathers name. Many Immigrants used their fathers name as a surname. Hope that helps
