April newsletter is here!

Happy Spring! Our March newsletter is filled with great updates!

We’d like to thank Mr. Jack Kannan for his generous donation to the Khayrallah Program. We cannot continue to do this work without the help of the community!

Check out Robert Rouphail’s great interview with Mrs. Alma Farris, as she recounts her life, work and family in North Carolina. Alma’s family collection can be found here under her daughter’s surname Findlen. In this collection, you can view Alma Farris (née Parker’s) birth certificate!

We are also proud to report back on the research we are conducting in the area of death in the Lebanese-American community. We have gathered well over 600 death certificates. This information will allow us to learn even more about the community. Check out the graphics below!

Our Culture and History sections, so let us know what you think! This month we showcase The Lebanese Rocket Society, a 2012 documentary, and offer a short history on one of our favorite cities, Beirut.

Finally, this weekend is the 15th Annual Lebanese Festival! Check out our blog post about the event. For more information, go to the Triangle Lebanese Association website here.

As always, if you’d like to get involved, let us know!
