Researching Forgotten Armenian Names of India
Have spent several hours today researching a name not normally associated with the known and familar names of the Armenians of Calcutta. Have discovered several variations on the spelling - Ptum, Pitum, Pittoom, Pattom, Petum. It is another of the many Indian Armenian family names that have simply died out but were once well known both in Calcutta and Madras.
