I have recently been going through my old family photos. My grandmother’s maiden name was Apcar and in my collection of photos which my grandmother passed onto me I have an original carte visit of Diana Apcar as a very young lady.
If you would be interested in adding this to your collection I would be happy to scan and send it to you.
According to my grandmother she is a member of our family as we are also associated with the Galstaun clan. In fact, our Armenian community school here in Sydney is named after Arshak & Sophie Galstaun – Galstaun College as they were the benefactors.
I hope to hear from you.
I’m Andrew Apcar Greene. I’m just now noticing that the translated Apcar tree was a project I did in high school, and my name shows as contributing additional names to the tree.
I’m very moved to see it here. I would love to contribute where I can. Feel free to reach out anytime. I hope to hear from you.
I had never heard of Diana Apcar until today. Many years ago I found an old letter in a book at the flea market. It was written by Ruth Apcar about 6 weeks after the Great Kanto Earthquake to one of her friends in the US. It contains a first-hand account of what she and her family went through during and after the disaster. She mentions “Mamma” several times, and how well she dealt with what had happened. I came across the letter again in a box of papers that had been in storage, re-read it, and was interested to find out something about Ruth, if I could – which led me to her mother. What an amazing story! I transcribed the letter – I’ll send you the text if you wish.
I am a historian of international migration of Asians, and had been doing research these 15 years on Armenian communities in Japan, South-east Asia and India. I have so far collected documents about A.M.Apcar and Diana Apcar in Yokohama and Kobe in Meiji period Japan. At present I am preparing for writing a book on the above topic. If you are expecting for informations of the Apcars, pl.contact me.
I am writing an article on the foreigners residing in Yokohama between 1900-24. The paper is based on 4 US Dept of State docs sent by US Consuls in Yokohama to Washington. I came across your website which contains a goldmine of information on this remarkable woman. I will be using some of the documentary material from your site that will be duly acknowledged. There are some photos for e.g Consul General for Armenia which I would like to include in my piece. May I kindly have permission to include 2-3 photos from the website? Sincerely, STS
PS I am also covering the Greeks. Please check out my articles which will give you some indication of my research interests.
What is the status of this film? I live in SF. Very interested to see it. Thanks.
Drop me a line I have some information on one of these older Apcars. I can send a portrait of him as well.
Is work being done to create lists of travelers from Yokohama to other Western U.S. cities? My grandfather Kevork Megerdigian traveled from Yokohama to Seattle. He was to send money back to Yokohama to pay the way for his brother and sister to follow. They are on the list of travelers to San Francisco – Ardashes and Satenig.
I’m so happy to hear from you. Yes, I have developed a list of travelers from Yokohama to Seattle (as well as San Francisco). I will look for your father’s name and send you his ship manifest if I find it.
Thanks so much for contacting me.
Best regards, Mimi Malayan
I’d love to hear more about your information. Which Apcars are you referring to?
I’m so sorry that I did not respond to your email earlier. Do to technical problems with the website, I haven’t been receiving emails for 2 years. So I am finally seeing your message.
I expect to finish the film by the end of January 2018. I would love to have a screening in San Francisco in the spring.
Thank you for contacting me.
