Seeking any information on my ancestor's that originated from Diyarbaker, Armenia, Turkey (possibly). Many rumors swirl that they fled (4 died ) during the Genocide and were under protection from the French Consulate ? I am not sure if they left from LaHavre or ports of other countries once they got to France. Actually, I am not totally sure of the French Consulate information but I can only go on what has been told to family members.

I have pictures and names, marriage cert and death cert that take me back to my great great grands IN Diyarbaker possibly around 1899?

The names you will see in the family picture in Armenia are the names I am seeking information on and their branches/friends etc. In addition, we have heard that other names attached to our family are Krikor, Prapion, Ohannes, Ari, and more that I cannot think of right now.It appears that many did change their names when arriving to the US either to make their names stand out less or to keep hidden from the Turkey.

If you have any information from Armenia-Turkey, documents, advice in where to continue to search, etc. (since I am not sure all made it during the horrendous genocide), I would be forever grateful. I am very nervous to hear of the constant and continued destruction of the documents from Amernia (genocide evidence). I hope that I can get something, anything before the wretched individuals destroying these documents finish their task.

Thank you so much,

Holly
