thank you! ill google that  ;D

Can someone please help. I am trying to trace someone who is claimed to be Greek, who was born in Turkey, served in the Turkish Army, was a war prisoner and then went to Greece as a refugee. I have tried to research this and i need help. I have the DNA of one of their relatives and there is NOT any Greek DNA which contradicts what information i was given on this family being Greek. I also am aware of Turkish Family Trees , where family members came to Greece and changed their surnames. I cannot get above the late 1800's or link anyone up as the names provided are in Greek.

If you actually 'are Greek' then how is it possible to be come to Greece as a refugee in the early 1900's? Does anyone have any details of the history in this area and time?  Thank you

M'Keown is not related, she is named after teacher (in my family) who taught at the school her (M'Keown) father was a headmaster at. I managed to get in contact with the family.

Given the age difference of William Turner and Melicina Bateman, it is more plausible that they met teaching in northern Ireland as on their marriage certificate, they were living near each- other.

How do i go about finding information (can i get any information?) on who was at the Teachers Training College 1860-1866? I have been told to research as that could explain HOW Melicina Bennet Bateman met William Turner (if they were there at the same time) and her then move to Northern Ireland to teach.

I have been told that you couldn't teach UNLESS you went to the above. I am not certain if this is true for their era but i am trying to put it all together.

Thank you in advance for help   ;D ;D

Hi Aghadowey,  NO they are not my posts  ;D  (they have the same family). My cousin is going to drive to Turners Town Lane and around that area to see what he can find. I will post his findings on Roots Chat to help anyone researching the Turners.  ;D ;D

I found there remains a 'Turners Town Lane' on the map just north of the 'V" on B75 where Drumagamer Road intercepts another road (the name cut off what i have). Turners Town Lane is north of and not quite in the middle of Swatragh and Tamlaght  ;D ;D


A relative in England found the above on Turners Town, which is why we are both interested to find out more to see who originally settled it. Unfortunately with the destruction of records i feel i am stuck at 1830.

Thank you all for your help, it is greatly appreciated!  ;D ;D

Dear Roots Chat,

I am wondering if anyone has any information on the above? Where i can look to see where the Turner's came from that established 'Turner Town'. I believe this is where our Turner Family originated but have yet to prove.

Any help/assistance is greatly appreciated!!! Thank you  ;D ;D
