The Galaba, Pekri, Fesa, Lao, Cambulat and Şufta are part of this family group.

The Mehmet Katri (Katriniyes/Katrinins) family were the earliest known descendants of  the Galaba, Pekri, Fesa,  Bedasi, Kasino, Gaçari and the Kavaz families. A calculated guess would give us a rough date of early or mid 1700s for the Birth of Mehmet Katri It seems this family were established in Luricina at least from the mid 1700s, There are some notes from old timers records that suggest this family may have come from Manisa the Aegean, region of Turkey. [1] When they came is not conclusive, but subsequent information since the setting up of this site has come to light which seem reliable on the origins of this family. An interesting discovery that Mehmet Katri's 4th son  İSMAIL MEHMET 'Gaçari' was also the father of MEHMET KAVAZ . Mehmet was infact the 1st  person to acquire the name Kavaz which has been carried to the present day. Simply put MEHMET KATRİ is one of the oldest ancestor on record. Who would have guessed that the KAVAZ  and GALABA'S were originally one and the same family.  Katri was not the surname but many people who belonged to the Katri order used it as part their recognition of the order they belonged to.


The name Katri originates from Qadiriyyah. The Qadiri Order is one of the oldest Sufi Orders. It derives its name from Abdul-Qadir Gilani (1077-1166), a native of the Iranian province of Mazandaran. [2] The order is one of the most widespread of the Sufi orders in the Islamic world, and spread to Central Asia, Turkey, Cyprus, Balkans and much of East and West Africa. The Qadiriyyah have not developed any distinctive doctrines or teachings outside of mainstream Islam. They believe in the fundamental principles of Islam, but interpreted through mystical experience. This name was normally given to certain individuals who followed the order of the Qadiriyyah. What this implies for our ancestor Mehmet Katri/Kadri is not clear. What is clear however is that during the Ottoman period it was normal to use the name of the order one belonged to. Many Yeniçeri's / Janissaries  also followed the Kadri order
