Karaman Population and Outbreak Report
reported by Şakir Bey to Istanbul in 1845 Military District Governor Şakir Bey's Desire to the Sultan
The Ottoman Empire, as an empire, had a structure that made people from all nations in place.
Especially after the Tanzimat, many non-Muslim civil servants were in charge of the establishment of a western-style bureaucracy in the city administrations.
There are Greek and Armenian neighborhoods in almost all major cities, and in some cities these two were recorded as Zimmiyan - Christian Quarters.
People of the Book and Zimmi were called non-Muslim Christians and Jews. The Armenians, Greeks and Jews under Ottoman rule were called the Three Nations. These three nations were obliged to pay tax and tribute to the state.
Usually the ethnicity of the Zimmians was Greeks and Armenians. There were also Orthodox Christians of Turkish origin who wrote Greek in the old Karamanoğulları dormitories such as Konya, Karaman and Nevşehir.
In 1845, there were 273 non-Muslim people living in 105 households that were scattered in 14 quarters in the center of Karaman, and 86 non-Muslims living in inns, and the total number of non-Muslims was 359.
I'm translating these 359 people, all men, name by name and neighborhood by neighborhood. I hope it will be published here piece by piece.
In today's part of this article series, we share the figures showing how many households in which neighborhood - how many people and how many people in which inn.
