Looking for My Cousins In Izmir
Posted in the Izmir, Turkey Forum
I am looking to find my cousins that are in Izmir,Turkey. My grand father was name Rasit Mahammed Turguttken he had a twin brother named Mustafa who I was told past away in the past few years. My great grandmothers name was Pimby and she was suppose to be from Sudan.
I was told that my grandfather grew up on the Black Sea and later moved to Bodrum, Turkey. He left Turkey on a ship in 1923 and came to the United States.
I away trying to reconnect with my family in Turkey and need help. If any one has any information, records or anything to try to locate my family members, I would appreciate it. Maybe even the name of the ship he was a stowaway on in 1923.
When he became a citizen of the United States he name changed to Rasit Mahammed Resit.
I was told about two years ago from the person my grandfather adopted from Turkey that most of my relatives have moved to Izmir over the past few years. His name is Hussein Karoz and he lives in Virginia and still writes as a journalist for the Turkish newspaper occasionally.
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
