Administrative history

Further to the Treaty of Neuilly between the Allied Powers and Bulgaria, a Convention was signed in Neuilly on 27 November 1919 in order to settle the problem of mutual and voluntary emigration of ethnical minorities of religion or language in Greece and Bulgaria.

Further to article eight of the Convention, a Mixed Emigration Commission was set up, which was responsible for implementing the principles of the Convention and settle in particular the "clearing" of real estate.

The Convention of Neuilly organized the free emigration of people with their personal estate and a sort of "clearing" for their real estate. But it was not at all dealing with financial help or loan.

Archival history

The archive group was sent from Athens to Geneva in 1932. It consists of one part only of the archives of the Mixed Greco-Bulgarian Emigration Commission, because some files were given back to the governments of Greece and Bulgaria. Moreover some files were voluntarily destroyed. The archive group includes mainly the proceedings of the Commission and for some of them of the sub-commissions, as well as the "tapous", that is to say title deeds from the Ottoman land register.
