Cairo 1785. My origins in pre-Napoleonic Egypt

113l.jpgMy family starts in Egypt in 1785, thirteen years before the Napoleonic invasion (1798). My great-great grandparents (Joseph Siouffi and Therese Tutungi) were born in Cairo in 1785-6. My grandmother, Caroline (Siouffi) Bauval was born in Alexandria in 1876. My father, Gaston Bauval, was born in Alexandria in 1905. I was born in Alexandria in 1948.
