My name is Aysel (Bariscan) Alldredge and I'm a Turkish citizen currently living and working in Salt Lake City, Utah. My history is somewhat unique for a person who grew up a Muslim in Sivas and Izmir, Turkey. I am one of the few converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints who converted to this religion in Turkey. My interest in genealogy began after converting to this religion. I have found over 100 names for my family and others going back to 1771 in Turkey, without the help of many records. All of the names I've found have been recorded in the International Genealogy Search Center in Salt Lake City. Many of the records in Turkey are in the Arabic and Ottoman languages, as well as in Turkish. Doing genealogy research in Turkey is a very tender subject especially for Armenian, Greek, and Italian people with roots in Turkey because of the history and politics of the country and region. I feel that one of my purposes in life is to help people with roots in Turkey and this part of the world to find their ancestors. I consider this a work of joy and only charge the travel and basic living expenses and a reasonable rate which can be negotiated. I look forward to working with you.
