    Love this one! I think we should put it in the family history book. Would you be willing? I was told the cross tattoo was on the web between her thumb and fingers, but I’ll try to confirm that with Corinne.

    My grandfather, born in Lebanon during the Ottoman empire and a Christian, had a tattoo of a cross on his hand. I never knew the story behind it though my family speculates. Him and my grandmother died when I was 12 years old so I never really got to ask them. Thank you for writing your story.

      Thank you for your comments —– I would not be surprised that many of us have similar family tales! 🙂
