Iris,
Thanks for your reply on Feb. 3rd. Do you know when your grandparents immigrated to the U.S.? Your father was Edward James Joseph, what is your mothers name? I still haven't gotten the answers from the rest of the family about exactly where my great-grandparents entered the U.S. or when they moved to Minnesota. If you come up with anything new, please send me a message at my E-mail, jnjlee@dbstech.com. Maybe we have someone in common and can exchange information.

My grandfather and grandmother came from Lebannon. His name was Sarkis Joseph. My grandmother was Frangia Joseph. I have an uncle somewhere in Lebannon. I have been searching for him with out any luck. We have not heard from him since the early seventies. His name is Joe Joseph. My grandparents came from Zgharta, up in the mountains. Any information would be greatly appreciated

None of these names rings a bell with me. My grandfather had 10, 12 or 13 children; only six children that lived to adulthood; My father was George. My uncles were Samuel, Willie John and (Joe Joseph who died in Waterbury, CT. before I was born). My aunt was named Jamelia. She was born in Lebanon and came to this country when she was about 12 years old and lived in Richmond, VA. and there was another aunt who died before I was born. My grandfather returned to Lebanon after my grandmother died. He married and had two children. My step uncle is Joe Joseph and he married and had 2 or 3 children. He also has a sister.
My grandparents were peddlers. They lived in AL. or Louisanna and then Virginia. I have cousins named Hanna who settled in Covington, VA and they are somehow related to us.

I have been doing research on the Syrians who boarded the Titanic in April 1912. Three passengers were from the Joseph family although Catherine, the mother, listed her name as Peter (taking her husband's first name as her last name). She was returning to Detroit to her husband, Peter and returning with her two children, Mary and Michael. They were from Saraal in what was then Syria and what is now in modern day Lebanon. Is there any information on this family available?
Thank you
