Family Stories

I just read an interesting article about Family Stories and how they can help our children cope.  The article by Bruce Feiler was titled "The Stories that Bind Us" and published in the New York Times on March 15, 2013.

Abidaoud last name origin of Aramaic-Phoenician

Ancient last name of Aramaic-Phoenician Origin (Abidaoud)

Abidaoud, Abi is used in the Phoenician Kings names of Tyre Abibaal and Abimilki. Abidaoud in English is Abidavid or my father David and the son of David (Davidson). A very strong religious relationship between Jews and Christians. Lebanon-Phoenicia is one of the first nations to convert to Christianity after the death of Christ. The above names are a very strong evidence to the strong impact and link to the Bible of its Phoenician-Lebanese origin. All the biblical names now days are translated to many languages and used in relationship with hebrew-christianity.
Saint David (500–589) (known in Welsh as Dewi Sant) was a church official, later regarded as a saint and as the patron saint of Wales. David contrasts with the other national patron saints of the British Isles, Saints George, Andrew and Patrick, in that a relatively large amount of information is known about his life.
King David David (c.1037 BC - 967 BC; reigned Judah c.1007 BC - 1005 BC, Judah and Israel c.1005 BC - 967 BC; Hebrew:, Standard Davíd Tiberian Dāawíð, Aramaic: Dāawūd, "beloved") was the second king of the united Kingdom of Israel. He is depicted as a righteous king—although not without fault—as well as an acclaimed warrior, musician and poet (he is traditionally credited with the authorship of many of the Psalms). His life and reign, as recorded in the Hebrew Bible's books of Samuel (from I Samuel 16 onwards) and Chronicles, have been of central importance to Jewish and Christian culture.
King Abibaal The Dynasty of Abibaal. Under Abibaal (c. 1000), Tyre was transformed into a superb harbor and Abibaal's son Hiram I (969–935) entered into an alliance with David of Israel, which continued in the time of Solomon. ( 1000–965). Phoenician artisans designed and built the temple of Solomon, and joint Phoenician-Israelite fleets sailed in the Mediterranean and the Indian Ocean. Hiram I unified all of Phoenicia from Mount Carmel to Arvad, though vassal dynasties continued to rule at Byblos and Arvad under Sidonian suzerainty. Little is known of Hiram's successors other than their names and dates: Baalmazzar I (935–919), Abd`ashtart (918–910), Ashtart (909–898), and `Astartrom (897–889). The last king of Abibaal's dynasty, Pilles (888) was assassinated by the high priest of Astarte, Ittobaal, who founded a new dynasty.
King Abimilki Abimilki ruled Tyre during the reign of Akhenaten. Ten of the Amarna letters were written by him, mentioning such rulers as Zimridi of Sidon, Etakkama of Kadesh, Aziru of Amurru, and the King of Hazor.If Pygmalion was Abimilki, a loyal servant of Egypt, we might understand better why he would kill his uncle for paying tribute to Assyria. Sicharbas may well have decided that it was wiser to give allegiance to a powerful and dangerous Assyria than to a toothless Egypt. From the tone of his letters, it is doubtful that Abimilki would have agreed. Another synchronism may tighten the connection between Abimilki and the eighteenth year of Shalmaneser III. In EA 154, Abimilki mentions one Yawa, a name which is phonetically identical with Yaua, by which name Jehu is mentioned by Shalmaneser [18]. EA 230 is a letter to Pharaoh from Yama, identified by Mercer with the Yawa mentioned in EA 154 (he cites the common m/w shift in Akkadian). The letter begins: "Say to the king, my lordThus says Yama, your servant At your feet I fall down Behold, I am your servant." At no time does he refer to the king as "my god" or "my sun" or other such idolatrous statements [19]. This would be expected from the biblical Jehu, who destroyed the Baal worshipers in North Israel.
'Today Abidaoud is a Christian Maronite family with Aramaic liturgy aged 2000+ years since the death of the Christ and with a Phoenician DNA (Canaanite),
originated from the ancient town in the Christian heartland of Beithabak-Byblos, Lebanon(Phoenicia).
'Abidaoud race is White Canaanite
Abidaoud country of origin: Ancient Phoenicia, modern Lebanon
'Abidaoud country of citizenship: Lebanon, Brazil, Canada, Belgium, USA, Switzerland, France, Danmark, Lithuania, Philippine.'

German Siblings

I have two siblings who were born to my dad Jim P Hughes while he was stationed in Germany during WWII. I would like to find them, if possible. Unfortunately I do not know their last names. I think their first names are Fran and Greg. It seems impossible that I will ever find these siblings since my dad's military records were destroyed at NPRC in the 1973 fire. So I don't know where my dad was stationed or where he was fighting during WWII.

I am making this post just in case they are searching for their American ancestry or American history.

Hello, I am looking for any

Hello,

I am looking for any family members from the Danulescu family that lived in Romania either in Ramnicu Sarat, Valenii de Munte sau Braila. My great great father name was Anton Danulescu.

Singleton Inquiry

I am looking for any information on a Francis (C. or Charles) Singleton born abt. 1824 according to census records in South Carolina, but he could have been born elsewhere and raised in SC (thinking he grew up there). He was an overseer on plantations in Louisiana and is my great great grandfather.
He died of pneumonia as a prisoner of war in OH during the civil war.
married to Nancy Allen, children Ethan Eugene Singleton and Louise(Louisa)Singleton

I have only found one reference by GLSingleton that he could be a brother to an Abner Singleton from South Carolina - son of a John Singleton, but have not found this lineage anywhere. His age is certain he was born abt. 1824

Possible Uncle Wyatt Singleton.

Thank you.

Murphy

Looking for family of James John Murphy (possible from NYC and before that County Cork Ireland.) Mid 1800s married to Mary Ellen Moore and had children Mary Frances Murphy b. approx 1866, Margaret Murphy b.approx 1872, possibly a daughter named Sarah Murphy and sons James and other unknown children. Really need a male of that line to take DNA test which I would cover so can get farther back in my family tree..
