In the past, Family Trees were a symbol of nobility. It is interesting that
in England for example, most people can trace their ancestors to a few hundred
years, while others can go back almost a 1,000 years with the arrival of the
Normans in England and beyond.
Now with the advent of science, Family Trees have become even more important
than just tracing ancestors. A whole new range of information could be useful.
For example, knowledge of possible genetic disorders within a family can be used
to eradicate certain inherited diseases by genetic counselling.
Regrettably, in the past most family trees did not contain the names of the
female siblings. Such information is vital especially where intermarriages are
We would like to complete the Gharios Family Tree, which has been kindly handed
to us by Mr Khalil B.Gharios (Arabic version). In doing so we seek your active
participation in providing the necessary information. We rely on the young
people of the Gharios family to come forward and help with this task.
Within the Search Section you may view the English
version of the Gharios family tree.
If you can help identify or extend this family tree in any way, do not hesitate
to contact us and tell us what you know however
trivial it is. We would appreciate complete information such as date of birth,
marriage or death. We would also be happy to include passport size photographs
of people. Please be generous and help us to build a complete family tree, which
we can all benefit from by making it accessible to all.
