Okay so please don't think I'm inbred but my not only is my dad a Farah (evident by his last name) but my mom was one too. They are not realted, at least it's sooo far down the line that they relly still aren't. My mother is Palestinian and Lebanese while my dad is full Syrian. My Dad's dad was Joseph Karam who's family was from New Jersey, he has two step-sisters, Rose and Helen. My dad's mom in a Karam from Oakdale Louisiana with a huge family down there. My mom's mom is a Sherawi (dunno how to spell) but the family changed their name to Thomas. My mom's dad was a Farah and I believe his family is based in Flint Michigan. Okay you still there? hahah I am 18 in Los Angeles, a theatre major in college, if you are related to me, i'd love to hear from ya. Bye!

Chris, I am just seeing this now, several years after you posted it, but I am almost certain we are related! My grandmother (my father's mother) was Asma Farah from Damascus, Syria. My father had a first cousin (the son of my grandmother's brother) named Joseph (Yousef) Farah who was married to Mary Karam. One of their sons was named Michael. There are some 1st cousin marriages going back in the family tree. Some of the males who first came over sent back to Syria to bring cousins over as wives. One of my older relatives once explained to me that it was a way of protecting the Arab women at the time, since females had no means of making it on their own, or rights or protection outside of the family looking out for them. I hope you can still receive messages through this means. I would really very much like to correspond with you. Do you have uncles, Joe, Louie, and William "Billy"? If so, it's a sure thing we are related. Your father would be my 2nd cousin.
