The Story of My Great-Grandparents (Hanna Rishmawi & Miladeh Bardawil)

In 1995, we had a combined Salomon family reunion and 50th wedding anniversary for my grandparents (John Salomon & Widad Isaac) in Flint, Michigan. With the help of my great-grandmother and others, my cousin Nora Moncada, put together a Salomon family history book. She was able to get stories from older family members and record them in English & Spanish.

I'd like to share this story about my great-great grandparents, Juan (Hanna) & Miladeh, taken from the book:

Ishaq Family Connections

The last name Issac or Ishaq from Beit Sahour stems from a common ancestor which also includes these last names- Habbas, AbuAitah, Salem, Qassis, Ibrahim, among others. If you trace the Ishaq ancestor back to 1630 you come to Dawoud Al-Qazaha. My grandmother's maiden name and her mother's maiden name is Ishaq. But on my grandfather's side, his mother's maiden name is Habbas, descending also from Dawoud Al-Qazaha through the branch of AbuAitah.
