Well, I had always wanted to go back to Lebanon and see from where my ancestors came. But now it seems my plans will have to be deferred.

My grandfather was born in Bteghrine in 1896. He took the last name of "Tegreene" which is an English version of "Bteghrine." That is my last name. I live in Cleveland, Ohio. Our Orthodox Church is St. George. I hope to travel to Bteghrine someday soon.

Maybe you may want to put a facebook button to your blog. Just bookmarked the blog, but I had to make this manually. Simply my suggestion.
