I am trying to trace my family ancestors who resided in the northern black sea region of turkey. They had resided there for as long as can be remembered. I believe they were of greek ancestry but cannot be sure 100% sure of this, as many different races and nationality's were representative of this area over the 1000's of years.
Surname in the 1920's was Kotamanidis, it may also be refered as Kotamanoglou as well, during the treaty exchange and years prior, I understand some young uncles or aunties were lost and do not know what happened to them. I may have close blood relatives which whom I do not know living in Turkey, though, may have different surnames.
My parents were born in Lefkadi (Vinia) a little village about 10klms from Tsotili in Kozani province. My grandparents were from Samsun and trabazun pontos. Can anyone assist in my search for my historic identity.
