The trick to driving in Cairo is to understand that they all drive in the same crazy way, so you can learn to anticipate what they are going to do. It may be flawed logic, but it is shared by all. For example, they will always try to pass you on the right (even in gridlock) and no one yields when entering a traffic circle. I took the advice of other expats and at first only ventured out Friday mornings. The roads were empty until after Friday prayers. That gave me a chance to get to know my way around without the worst of the traffic. But, I will admit that I only drove on weekends. I was fortunate to have an excellent English speaking driver. I think a Cleveland family reunion would be an interesting challenge. One of my other family branches leads back to the New Brunswick Steeves family. They had a reunion last summer at the Steeves House Museum in Hillsborough, NB to which they invited all of the many hundreds of thousands of descendants of Heinrich Stief & his 7 sons who settled there in 1766. Perhaps they could offer some suggestions on how to get started. Judy Stewart, Darien, CT

Martin – My 2nd great-grandparents were William and Deidamia Cleveland. Their youngest daughter, Clara Cleveland, was my great grandmother so we have a common branch to our family trees. I feel fortunate that you have done so much excellent work in documenting our ancestors and I want to thank you for making it available. I lived in Cairo from 2001 to 2008 and I miss Egypt every day. I was pleased to read that you had the opportunity to visit. Judy Stewar
