The following directories were published in Athens in 1928 by the Epitropi Apokatastaseos Prosfygon (Refugee Resettlement Commission) and contain a list of Ottoman Greek refugees that were expelled from their homelands in the former Ottoman Empire (today's Tukey). The names are classed as 'rural' which means they either came from rural areas or were settled in rural areas in Greece.

Note: These lists include Greeks from all regions of the former Ottoman Empire, not just Pontus.

You can either view the directories online, or you can download them. Since each directory is quite large, we are providing links (see below) so you can view them online. Firstly, find the directory based on your ancestor's surname from the list below. In the directory, you will see the refugee's name, which region they came from, and a number. To find out where they were settled, you will need this number. Then, go to the first catalogue below "Catalogue of refugee numbers based on region", and you will need to search for this number to see which region they were settled in.
