Duma is my town although i have never been there ,but my whole family came from there ,and even though i was born in America my culture is lebanese, my lenguage is arabic and my heart belongs to Duma,Lebanon andthe lebanese people
My grandparents, David Nader and Anna (Soffa) Nader were born in Lebanon and came to America in 1908 or so. My uncle Waddie (real name Odea - their son) once told me that his parents came from a place called Duma. I'm wondering if this is the place and how many relatives I may have there. My grandparents had brothers/sisters that stayed there or returned there after being in America for awhile. Best regards.
I am an American whose great-grandparents Amen Soffa and his wife Nazera Kimmel (sometimes spelled Lazera Cammel and various other ways) came to America in the late 1800s. I am looking for anyone who can help me research my family history concerning these people. Amen (and I think he had a sister Anna) were orphans in Duma Syria (Nazera was from Beirut). Because I only speak English, and because I haven't visited Lebanon yet, I don't have any way to research further. If anyone reading this can help, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
