I have a question and need your grandparents were both born in Izmir, Turkey but left their country around the 1922. They immigrated to Argentina, Buenos Aires. I don't know their birth dates, i just know their names and date of death. Is it possible to obtain a copy of their birth certificate? How do I go about it? Appreciate your advice - thanks!

Hi Gabriela,

Before Turkish Republic has been established, all registered stuff like birth certificate or citizen registration paper were given and kept by Ottaman's. Unless your relatives were related with army or Sultan's family, now is very difficult to reach the birth papers. You may try to apply bith registration office.
