Lebanese emigration started at the nineteenth century. Lebanese emigrants targeted North and South America, as well as Australia and New Zealand. Later, flows of emigrants went to South Africa and Central America.
Those emigrants left behind hundreds of lands and estate properties, shared with their relatives. In many cases, the Lebanese authorities were not notified of their death, so their properties in Lebanon remain pending. Things could be more complicated when they did not register marriages or births because of the inheritance issues.
On the other hand, hundreds of Lebanese lived in Ottoman cities and married Italians, French, Austrians, etc. Reaching the archives could help their descendance recovering their ancestor’s nationality.
