You have to know that all of the Ottoman documents, pictures and maps are written in Ottoman Turkish. So at first place you have to aware of it. The Ottoman archive is the largest archive you will find on earth. Most of it is in Istanbul. The library of congress has amazing collection of photographs.

I’d advice you to contact any Turkish historian, there are plenty of them especially if you’re searching for something documented.

There are many archive websites, like , the Gutenberg Press, the Vatican archives, the London archives, and The Library of Congress.

Turkish and Hungarian ones would be the second place to look.
