  • Did you see our pages on Syriac Duprey, Jr. and Syriac Duprey, Sr.? I'm a little uncertain of the facts on Syriac Sr.'s page— things tend to get a bit murky when you have three generations sharing one name. We'd love to have any photos you'd like to share. Uploading them can be tricky— feel free to email them to me at [email protected]. Thanks.
