Family names in the 19 th Century Kfarsghab
by Youssef

In the following table, you find a list of family names of men and women of Kfarsghab who lived in the 19th Century. They are taken from the list of the deceased members of the Brotherhood of the Immaculate Conception founded in Kfarsghab on 27 August 1854. Several families use common names as a last name (first name of a grandfather generally) even when they are not related. To differentiate them, the usage of a nickname was very current. You will find in the table the nicknames. Please, do not hesitate to correct or to add information by [contacting me]. I would be grateful.
