Judge Edgar Albert (Eddie)
Zorab LLD went to Persia/Armenia,

family tree on the basis of the genealogical tree composed in
Armenian by Aviet (Avetick) Carapiet Zohrabiants, of New Julfa,
Isfahan, Iran, in 1919. Judge Edgar's tree was spread over five
(5) pages of a notebook. Peter Douglas Zohrab received a version
of this by email from Dr. John Zorab, and then a photocopy by
mail from Mr. Kelvin Pollock. The two versions are clearly not
photocopies of each other or of the same original, and the latter
seems more authentic, in that it shows lines appearing to be those
of a notebook, and in that it includes writing in Dutch, which
was clearly Judge Edgar Zorab's main language (apart from Armenian).
