I am researching the film 'Not Without My Daughter'. Is there any body who knew Betty Mahmoody or her Iranian husband prior to their marriage, during their marriage, or was involved in the making of the film in anyway? Does anyone know Betty's maiden name or the name of her first husband? Any information will be welcome. Thanks

Betty, as far as I always knew that her house is in Alpena, Michigan along the shore of Lake Huron. It is a very nice home. You may want to contact the Alpena County Historical or Genealogy Society, they maybe of better help. Alpena is about 120 miles south of Pickford in lower Michigan.
Hope this helps in your research

It is my understanding that Betty Mahmoody lived in Shiawassee County for awhile. I think her husband practiced medicine in the Owosso area but I am not for sure on this. The movie premiere was at the Owosso Cinama. I remember they has the premieri party at the Cournna historical court house. I read the book but do not remember her husbands name. You may want to check the Argue Press printed in Owosso or the Flint Journal printed in Flint for new articels on the event.

Before going to Iran, they were from Alpena where her husband practiced medicine. After escaping and coming back to the states they lived in rural Shiawassee county where they were in "hiding". If I remember, the daughter attended the catholic school in Owosso under tight supervision.

hi there, kathy.
Betty's maiden name is Lover. I'm not sure of the name of her first husband or whether it was mentioned in the book. This topic also intrigues me - because I'm muslim and yet our lives differ so much.I do however, understand why Moody took her to Iran and all the social implications of her marriage. Iran seems like its stuck in the dark ages. you can contact me on adeela.k@lycos.com. Best of luck with your paper.
