Houshamadyan will publish a trove of material related to the life, history, and heritage of Armenians who lived in this historic region.

We also hope that natives of Amasya and their descendants, living all around the world, will contribute to this effort to revive their past by contributing digitized photographs, unpublished memoirs, artifacts to Houshamadyan.
