Annuaire Oriental, Oriental Directory - 1922
We can't say that it's a regular book, but it's a perfect feeling to see the name of our great granduncle in the Annuaire Oriental, Oriental Directory - 1922 in SALT RESEARCH Archives as 'Vafiadis ( Georges ), chaises, Kutchuk Yeni Han'.
'Vafiadis (Georges)' is Yorgo Vafiadis 'chaises' means chairs, and 'Kutchuk Yeni Han' is 'Küçük Yeni Han'. Here we see that the oral history of our family once again proved by sources as we knew that our grand ancestors were chair manufacturers in Küçük Yeni Han.
