Im Ana, from Argentina. Im looking for information and family in other places (Francia -Lyon- or United States possibly, Greece and Armenia).
My grandfather was Garabed Betlehemian, born in 1914 in Stanoz / Istanos, a little village 30km to the west of Ankara. (Today called Yenikent) His parents were Caloust Petlehemian (died in 1915), and Mariam Bulbulian. He had two brothers Hohavnnes and Mariam. During their stay in Istambul my grandparent was educated in a French Orphanage (I think it was St Joseph Orphelinat) in Pera.
My Grandmother is (and live with us, in Argentina) Arshaluis Matosian born in 1920, in Stanoz daughter of Boghos Matosian (killed in 1921) and Gulinia Hadji Aharonian.
Id' like to know if there is a possibility to find records of baptims, death, marriage from those places that, desafortunately, belongs to turkey today.
And know if what I have found and think that today is "yenikent, Sincan"place is the village that was "Istanos" those years ago.
Thank you very much.
