Armenian Refugees – Deaths at Sea 1922

I normally only post information on Armenians with an Indian/Asian connection.  However, quite by chance I have come across some deaths at sea of Armenian refugees in 1922. These records can be searched via To find them go to the A-Z of Records listing, look for “Deaths At Sea, 1781-1968”.

One particularly heart-breaking entry is of two week old Karakin Muan Kachik, born on board the ship “Akbar” and died on board the ship on the 14th January 1922 in Batoum Harbour. He only ever knew the swaying of the ship his parents never got to stand on solid ground with him.

Other entries show the place of birth of some of the refugees as Van, Basra, Bakuba, as well as other locations.

These are the entries I have been able to find there may well be more I hope they help fellow Armenian family history researchers with their own stories.
