Waqfs in Crete
This archive consists of official records of Muslim inhabitants of Crete who moved to Turkey during the 1920s as a result of the population exchange between Turkey and Greece. Documents spanning the period from 1825 to 1928 in Ottoman Turkish and Greek provide an opportunity to examine the multi-layered social structure on the island, especially from a cultural and economic point of view. This collection also includes a small number of records from other Greek centers such as Rhodes, Lesbos, Thessaloniki, Kavala, and Alexandroupolis.
