Hello, certainly good to hear from you. You are correct my family did originate in Lebanon. The name Ghanem was changed to Ganem, as well as several other spellings when people migrated to the US. My grandfather who moved to the US in the late 1800's did live in the northern part of Lebanon in Gabale, as well some other northern cities. I am two generations removed and have always lived in the US. I currently live in Atlanta Georgia.
