I have not researched this much, but if this is correct, Harran was a major ancient city in Upper Mesopotamia whose site is near the modern village of Altınbaşak, Turkey, 24 miles (44 kilometers) southeast of Şanlıurfa. The location is in a district of Şanlıurfa Province that is also named "Harran". - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harran#Harran_in_scriptures

Thanks, Daniel, I notice a place name, “Urkish,” not far from Harran on your map. Maybe traceable back to Abraham’s Ur? If so, it doesn’t look like he made that big of a trip from Urkish to Harran.
