Turkish Quarries are one of the most important systematic institutions that nationalism understanding gained power after the French Revolution has revealed in our lands. The Turkish Hearths, which were officially established in 1912, have become one of the most active and most determined servants of Turkish nationalism. Our study will be about the first issue of Ana Türk Yurdu magazine published in 1917, the year that Giresun Turkish Quarry was first opened, and then the number 6 published in 1918. Although it is not long-lived, the establishment of Giresun Turkish Quarry will be mentioned, and the contributions of this non-governmental organization to the social and cultural life of Giresun will be emphasized. It is not a coincidence that this institution, which is the advocate of the idea of Turkism, was opened in Giresun as well. It is necessary to see the national feelings of the people of the region as an expression. The Ana Türk Yurdu Magazine, like the local magazines printed in various regions of Anatolia, has carried out its printing activities in a very difficult way. He undertook an important mission in these times when the First World War continued and many parts of the Ottoman lands were occupied. They have demonstrated what the people of the lands that have not been occupied can do for the homeland through their activities. It is also important that they have contributed to the cultural activities of the city. In our study, the number 7 of the Ana Türk Yurdu Magazine, which is our source, was examined and evaluations were made on the remarkable ones of the activities of Giresun Turkish Quarry. Documents were obtained from personal archives and libraries. In addition, studies on Turkish Quarries and Giresun Turkish Quarry were also used.
