Father Bachaalany spent many years of his life to unearth facts and details about the lives of his Lebanese ancestors. He relied on first hand stories, documents from Church records and histories from libraries all over the world, e.g. in Rome and Beirut. He accumulated a large amount of knowledge on the history, culture, and development of people from Lebanon. The stories of these people stretch back to the time of the ancient world of the Phoenicians up to the mid 20th Century modern world. That knowledge was of incredible help to Paul Kieser, apart from the fact that Father Bachaalany had written everything down in Arabic. His translation now makes the information available to many more interested readers.
Even very specialised topics like the Maronite Catholic religion find a mention in “MY LEBANESE ANCESTORS” by STEPHEN BACHAALANY, Paul Knieser, Sarah Knieser, Nigel Knieser, Missy Knieser, Ruby Knieser and Jack Knieser. Paul Kieser managed to reveal the meaning of the words in Bachaalany’s books after working with them for over three decades. The book is an example of what a family heritage book should be, full of stories supported by detailed facts. We see the lives of the Maronite Catholic villagers living side by side with their Islamic, Druze, Protestant and Roman Catholic neighbors. All readers who are interested in the Lebanese heritage will find Father Bachaalany’s work very insightful.
