In the Ottoman Empire, Muslims and non-Muslims lived together for many years. There are some social incidents that this situation brings about. These include religious movements, which are defined as converted. Conversions to Islam, which are more intensive in the early periods of the Ottoman territories, are seen in every period. Studies on conversion carried out by limiting the region and time have increased recently. In this study, regional and periodical limitations were made, and the conversion to Islam movements in Adana between 1750-1799 years were investigated. However, since no serious data emerged as a result of the research Adana’s tendency was evaluated rather than movement. The main source of the article is the Adana ?er’iyye sicilleri. During the study, 41 Adana ?er’iyye sicili were scanned. In this article, the data obtained from the archive sources are analyzed analytically with various tables and graphs. 32 conversions to Islam records were found in the registers. Through these registers, the number of the people who converted in Adana, woman-man ratio, and their locations could be determined. Between 1750 and 1799, the number of males who converted in Adana was 22; the number of females was 10. It is also possible to analyze the names and to determine the nationalities of the convert.
