Here's some of the ancestry of Queen Noor of Jordan, fourth wife of the late King Hussein and mother of Crown Prince Hamzah. She's of mixed Syrian/Swedish/English/Scots descent. This was compiled by William A. Reitweisner, not by me; he can be reached at wrei@loc.gov if you have questions, but please note he probably will not research your personal genealogy. This is just something I thought might be of interest if your family includes a HALABY from Syria.
