We believe the surname of ancestor was NDJAIM. We only knew it as it was spoken. A Lebanese person tried to figure out what we were saying, and felt sure the name was really quite unpronounceable by English speaking persons, so was changed upon entering the U.S. about 1885 (through NY) to a simple JACOBS. Would like to know if anyone has ever seen a surname similar to the subject on this message.. If so contact me please.
