I am putting together a family tree on my father's side. They lived in Istanbul, Turkey, with the name Fresko. (In France, the name was spelled Fresco.) I have been interested in Sephardic genelealogy for a while now, and would appreciate hearing from other people with Fresko family from Istanbul!

This is my family tree from Istanbul:
