Harput family records
Posted by: Richard Bagdazian (ID *****5493) Date: April 03, 2011 at 21:41:29

I am doing research on my grandfather and grandmother's origins prior to arrival in the U.S. I have found a ship's manifest showing my Grandmother arriving in 1897. Her last name was Kurkjian from Harput. I believe my grandfather was also from Harput, but have been unable to find any ships manifesst but did find a U.S. census that lists his arrival in the U.S. as 1890. We currently spell our name Bagdazian, but not sure that is the original name and it may have been Bagdigian or something else. So I'm interested in trying to find out what records are available for Harput from about 1885 to 1890 and families living there or birth records, etc. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Thank you.
