Hi Terry. I believe that I may be a relative of Dimitrios. I am certainly a member of the Kaponas clan. My grandfather Evaggolino was born in 1891 and died in 1983. He lived his later years in Agia Pelagia. His family business was the store immediately in front of the jetty. Evaggelino migrated to Queensland, Australia in 1907. He had three children with his German born de facto wife Auguste Illguth. He travelled to Kythera with Auguste and his children Ruby and Mick in 1924. In June 1924 Auguste returned to Toowoomba where my father Peter was born in December that year. I visited Kythera in 1972, 1973 and again in 1986. My Aunty Ruby died in 2015 at the age of 100. My cousin Roy Conomos took some of her ashes to Evaggelo's grave which I guess would be somewhere near Nicolas's family tomb. My cousins Ian and Steven Perry have commenced compiling our family history. I would love to learn more about the Kaponianiko family. I hope to visit Kythera again in 2023 and hopefully find more distant relatives. Until then best wishes. Gary Conomos.

Hi Gary, I believe that a few years ago a group of us posted some photos of graves for Kythera Family Net members. Although I am not a member of the Kaponas clan, I belong to a Facebook Group called Kaponianiko Family Megalokonomos Theodoros-Kaponas. I am sure you may find relatives or more information there. If you need more info, send me a message here or on Facebook. Cheers!
