A collection of historical and genalogical records
I have been asked by a Palestinian living in Jordan for help in identifying her ancestors. Her surname is Daghlas. The main centre of those with this name seem to be around Nablus - a troubled part of the world.
The name is also spelled Daghles; some appear to use both.
It seems likely that the name originated around the time of the British civil administration in Palestine operated from 1920 until 1948.
Abdul Hadi Daghlas, known as Abu Taisir, was a Jordanian and a relative of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, and one of his top lieutenants in Iraq. He was killed in a cruise missile attack on the second day of the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
Osama Mohd Fathi Daghles (below), commonly known by the nickname Sam Daghles (born September 18, 1979), is a Chinese-born American-Jordanian professional basketball player.
So, a mixed bunch.
But are they members of the Douglas Clan?
