I am in search of family member from Zgharta. My great grandparents went to Brazil sometime maybe between 1910 and 1913, I am not very sure. Their names are Miguel (Micheal) Simon and Maria Jose Mafud. I know they changed their names because Brazilian couldn’t pronounce they’re names the correct way. Great Grandfather was born in 1891 in Beirut, Lebanon and Great Grandmother was born in 1897 in Bcharre, Lebanon. I believe their last names could also be Sima’an Farris or Semaan Ferris and Mahfoud. I have a letter from his brother named Anthony Simon it was addressed from Zgharta, Tripoli, Lebanon. He had a wife named Jouliette. His children were named Anwar, Jean, Nadim, Salem and Simon. This letter says they’re buildings burned down and they were in hiding in the mountains this letter has no year date. If anyone would know of any any family named Farris, Mahfoud, Abraham, Simon I would appreciate it very much I’ve been looking for them for 10 years with no success.
