There is a recent drive to set up an archive concerning the Lebanese of Mexico. This should be quite interesting.

Anywhere between 1 and 5 million Mexicans have some degree of Lebanese ancestry. Almost all are Christians. They started arriving in the 19th century.

Among some of the more famous are the actress Salma Hayek and the tycoon Carlos Slim.
