        According to popular opinion, based on demographic possibilities, there were around 25,000 Armenians in Jerusalem at their peak, just prior to the 1948 Arab-Israel war, divided among the communities in the Convent of St James, the Armenian Quarter, and the minority Catholic and Protestant enclaves who lived outside the Armenian compound.      This aggregated bunch of hardy, idealistic denizens, a large chunk of them survivors of a horrid genocide, would give grace their presence in  the Holy Land with the production of a number of men and women whose talents would catapult them onto the world stage.      The Armenians gave Jerusalem its first printing press and photographic studio, and the world incomparable music of Ohan Dourian. And philosopher and man of letters Haig Khatchadourian.      And a Minister of Oil and Energy for the Motherland.      Among others.      The year 1948 was both an epochal and catastrophic milestone in the history of the Armenian community of Jerusalem. The Arab-Israeli war wreaked terrible havoc on the Armenian compound, making the occupants refugees once again, giving added impetus to the massive exodus of Armenians, many of whom chose to return to the Motherland while others sought succor in the hospitable neighboring Arab countries.      The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestine Refugees stepped in to provide timely aid and support to the shrunken community, with kaghakatsi leaders in the vanguard of the volunteer corps that looked after their security and their material welfare.      To help with their efforts, the secretariat of the Patriarchate of St James conducted a census and prepared a list of all Armenian families residing in the Old City.      The list contains a total of over 540 families, a far cry from the handful holding the fort there now. The actual date of its compilation is not available, but it is safe to assume that it was written sometime in the early 1950's.      We have arranged the names alphabetically, beginning with the surname,  for easier viewing. But we have left the spelling as it appeared originally. Presumably, the list was typewritten by the secretariat's untiring dynamo, Sahag Kalaydjian. NOTE: The people listed here are the heads of their respective families, unless as yet unmarried. Unfortunately, the list does not mention either the spouses or the children.     This is the list.
