Maternal grandparents came from Lebanon in about 1914 and settled in Johnstown PA but I don't know what they did for a living since I had no contact with them growing up. When I was re-introduced to my birth Mom years later I was STUNNED to see this fully Lebanese woman with blue blue eyes.

My paternal grandparents came to the US around the same time from Kiev. They too had their consonant heavy last name "Ellis Islandized" and settled in Baltimore where they ran a store. I also didn't see them much growing up but I loved when I asked my grandma about her trip over to come here. I had pictured a harrowing boat ride across the Atlantic but she said it was a great trip where the stopped in Paris and such.

It sure would be nice to be able to go to Lebanon someday to see where they came from. I don't think it will be safe in my lifteim though.
