My reference guide to all the documents and papers (known to me) pertaining to the Bornova Anglican Cemetery and St Mary Magdalene’s Church Bornova. I compiled this report in October 2008 and it includes a lot of photocopies taken from the indexed documents which can only be seen in the hardcopy version. However this ‘electronic version’ contains a full index of important documents and the location of copies and originals (where available). It also contains some from extracts from various records which were easier to transcribe than copy. The index may be useful to your readers and could benefit from additional contributions; many of the original records are untraceable or may have been transferred to archives in England. It would be useful to add such additional information to the index. The book on St. Mary Magdalene Anglican Church, Bornova mentioned by the author Giles Milton is reference no SMM/1 in the above index. It is over 150 pages long and difficult to include here.
