'William Saroyan (August 31, 1908 - May 18, 1981) was an American author who wrote many plays and short stories about growing up impoverished as the son of Armenian immigrants. These stories were popular during the Great Depression. Saroyan grew up in Fresno, the center of Armenian-Americans in California, where many of his works are set (although he sometimes gave the city a fictional name).'

Now, what does Mr. Saroyan have to do with the Garoghlanian Tribe? I think he invented it for his works of fiction. In 'My Name is Aram', a book of short stories, his protagonist is a boy of Armenian descent called Aram Garoghlanian. Internet search engines seem to find only references to this book or to questions about the Garoghlanian Tribe on WikiAnswers and YahooAnswers. There are no actual people with this surname and no geographic region called Garoghlia or anything similar. Some answers say the family fell victim to the Armenian Genocide, but that cannot explain the total lack of historic references. Lacking evidence of its existance, I must conclude that this tribe is ficticous.
