Maleny Martinez

Hello! My father’s last name is Martinez Dabdoub, he and I talk about his grandparents origins (Doña Emilia and Don David Dabdoub) often, but we didn't have much information on the origins of the name. This is great! Thank you for sharing it.

Cindy Morin

My name is Cindy Morin, my grandparents emigrated from Bethlehem in 1920. Our family name is Freij. The famous mayor Elias Freij was my mother’s cousin. Her father and Elias’s father were brothers. The family moved to Mexico when my mother was 6 months

I recognize so many of the clan family names because so many of them emigrated to Monterrey, Mexico where my family settled. In fact, Monterrey, is a sister city to Bethlehem.

I am working on family genealogy, but doing research on this is difficult from the United States.

And now I am more intrigued because I did not find my grandmother’s family name on the list of clan names.

Thanks for a great source of information. Does anyone know the meaning of "Bethlehem"? Its a Syriac word meaning "Bakery" or "the bread baking place"
