Welcome to the Les Fleurs de L'Orient Genealogy Site.


Initially, the site covered only the Farhi families from the 12th century to today and was made possible with the contributions of many Farhi descendants from around the world as well as professional and dedicated genealogists. I thank them all for their help.

Also shown are the genealogy trees of the families (ancestors and descendants) if any of their member married a Farhi woman. Among them: Angel, Anzarut, Bigio, Dwek, Hakim,Harari, Hazan, Lisbona, Mifano, Picciotto, Sakal, Setton, Stambouli and many others.

Later, new branches were added as long as these new families could be linked to someone already on the tree. Under this self imposed rule, the site grew to include families which did not originate in the Middle East .

Therefore all families shown are LINKED but not necessarily BLOOD related to the others.


Dictionnaire & Lexique Franco-Egyptien

A dictionary of words and expressions used in Egypt by many of us has been compiled from an original Document submitted by Joseph Jesua of Paris. Many former egyptian residents contributed these words. The dictionary can be found at Dico Franco-Egyptien. These words had different origins including: Arabic, French, Italian, Greek, Turkish, English & Hebrew but were mixed in French sentences and conversations. If you have corrections or additional words to suggest, please write to the webmaster.

Editorial

New Tree : Farhi from Istanbul

We have added a new tree named Farhi from Istanbul, the 349 names represent Farhi weddings listed in the records of the Jewish Community from the 1880's to the 1980's. Each family is shown separately. An effort will be made to link them to other families from Turkey that are already in the main tree : Les Fleurs de l'Orient.


Farhi from Izmir

We have added a new tree named Farhi from Izmir, the 265 names represent Farhi families listed in the records of the Jewish Community from the late the 19th century. Each family is shown separately. An effort will be made to link them to other families from Izmir that are already in the main tree : Les Fleurs de l'Orient.

These records written in Ladino and turkish were submitted by John Farhy whose son Jeffrey visited Izmir in the 90's and got a copy from Refael Farhi, an Izmir resident at that time.

Haim Farhi (1750-1818)

Several Farhi families were the subject of numerous books, thesis, dissertations and news articles. Some of these are mentioned and referenced in this site.

Haim "El Muallim" Farhi was one of the most written about, member of the family. He was a politician and philanthropist. From 1789 to his murder in 1818, he was the Financial Vizier and de-facto ruler of Acca (Acco, now Israel) and its province.

Haim's brothers who lived in Damascus, later raised an army and laid a siege to Acco for 6 months against Abdullah Pasha who had ordered his murder and summary execution by issuing a Fatwa. An Acca square has been named after him.

He owned the 14th century Farhi Bible, now in the possession of the Sassoon family.
