I'd just love to see my name cited in your article as a credible
source for genealogical research in all those areas but, alas, I
seldom if ever research Ottoman Empire genealogy of the 19th century
so must beg off. But I'm confident you'll have plenty of volunteers
and if not, just rely on your own experiences.
As for me, heck, I'm still struggling to get out of mid-1700 VA!!!
Good luck to you and the national magazine as well.
