Help please with Jewish Family research in Turkey #names

Trish Lane

Has anyone had any luck with searching Jewish family history in Turkey in Constantinople.  I have been trying for years and have visited twice briefly.  I have written to the Grand Rabbi several times, to the Ashkenazi community, to Daniel Kazez, have paid a worker in the Archives when I was there, all to no avail. The records have either been destroyed or there are no records or perhaps I don't have enough information.  The script and language has changed as well. I understand my grandfather, his mother and 2 sisters were all born in Konstantinopel and the Rosenstein or Rattner family had a business there.
I would be so grateful for any suggestions.
Best Wishes,
Patricia Lane
