"A Family Tree Taken From Father Usef's History of the Village"

Description

A narrative family tree "based on the village church records of births, baptisms, marriages and deaths and some oral history, which were compiled in 1934 by Father Yousef (Kalem Cory's father)," priest of the village referred to in the document as "Mazarat Taffah" or "Mozarat Taffah" in northern Lebanon. Though the document is focused on the genealogy of the Ghanim el Shur family, it includes many asides for other important families in the village, and traces the marriages and births of many branches, including immigrants and their children. The unknown contributor or compiler underlined throughout the document, and added a note at the bottom that reads: "At the start of WWI, the village population was 400. At its end it was 200, with one half dying from hunger."
