Agamjanians from Boursa
Posted by: Sheila Roberts (ID *****8310) Date: September 19, 2010 at 12:55:48

My great grandparents, Toumajan and Marouhi (or Margaret) Agamjanian lived in Boursa, Turkey, and had four children: Husenik,Zaroohy,Yevnig, & Onig. I'm not sure of my great-grandparent's birth years, but their oldest daughter must have been born in the 1870's. All of their children came to the U.S. before the genocide, except Husenik. Husenik's daughter supported her in Istanbul as a seamstress until coming to the U.S. in 1919. It wasn't until well after my grandparents' generation had all passed that it occurred to me that I had never heard anything about what happened to my great-grandparents who remained in Boursa. None of my family knew whether they died prior to or during the genocide. Their best guess is that it was before. they would have been in their 60's by 1915. Anyone who has any information or ideas on how I might get more information about my great-grandparents, Toumajan and Marouhi Agamjanian, I would be very happy to hear from.
