About Me

" Beyhum " is a Lebanese family; the spelling of the name "Beyhum" in books, magazines, newspapers and search engines has been altered by its authors probably to take into account the pronunciation as best appropriate to the Country of publication.   For a maximum coverage, any interested person may wish to go to the search engine(s)  of his/her choice and look for the following:   Beyhum   bayhum   beyhoum  bayhom  beiham  beyhom beyum bayhoum bayhum baihoum beihom beihum   These are 2 examples of variations in the spelling:  Abdallah Beyhum is also spelled  Abdullah Bayhum, and Omar Beyhum also spelled Omar Beyhoum, Omar Bayhum, Umar Bayhum . We are unable to trace in all certainty the origin of the Beyhum family prior to the mid-eighth century AD, what is certain is that we took part in the conquest of Spain; our ancestors accompanied " Emir Abd al-Rahman I " in the conquest as notables and politicians. In 1310 AD they left Spain and headed to Beirut.
