    I finally made it to the Archive!

    No perfume today, just very friendly helpful staff. I was shown the volume of medical notes, with everything ribboned off except the entry I needed. I don't think there was a guillotine waiting for...

    Saghatelyan (sometimes Saghatelian) seems to be a fairly common Armenian family name. Perhaps the ղ (voiced uvular fricative ġat-Laut) was lost in transcription. It is sometimes realised as ʁ (a...

    I know. All I can find is the birth entry, 1901/11 censuses and the Mesopotamian marriage. After that, zilch. One of the Ancestry public trees is mine, and the other took the information from my...
