I live in Melbourne Australia. I dont know anything about my grandfather's grandfather. I remember my late dad saying that my grandfather's dad's name was Huseyin Basri and that he was from the Turkish village of Sinde. I dont have any relatives in Melbourne to ask. I have alot of relatives in London & Cyprus but they wouldnt know as well. Could you please tell me how I could trace my family's roots before my grandfathers father because its important for me as I would like to tell my children about our family's history where they came from to Cyprus. I know they were Turks but where from? Turkey, Middle East maybe l don't know. You mentioned before about Records you have from Sinde from another person (which happens to be my dad's first cousins wife from London) who was trying to trace their husbands background. I can remember my dad saying that his grandfather came from Mersin or Tarsus Turkey. If that is the case how do I trace my famiy back to Turkey. Any information would be appreciated.
