According to information from my cousin My greatgrandmother was born Stamatina Matina born Kritharis or Tzortzopoulos but most likely Kritharis because the grandfather and later the father of my grandmother born Maria Souris was lighthouse keeper from Karavas Stamatina married Dimitrios Souris the father of my grandmother My grandmother married my grandfather Eleftherios Kyriakidis Hiletis nickname to the year 1906 She had a sister who died young Erofili das 1920 and two brothers Panayiotis and Minas who emigrated to the United States or Australia Brothers Kritharis may be parents with me if their ancestor was indeed this lighthouse keeper named who died accidentally when he was fishing with dynamite

What a great site I am Stavroula Provataris My Father Andreas and his brothers Tasos and Soutiris were born in Agia Anastasia Potamos My cousins Dino Panayoti and Evita are also living on the island would love to be in touch with anyone that can give me information on our family history
My grandmother was Chrysanthy Kavezos from Zaglanikianika. She had some brothers that emigrated to Australia. I have met one of her nephews ,I believe Jim or John and his nephew (my cousin) Jim when he took a trip to the states.
I also met the elder Jim's daughter who was living in Florida at the time.
My grand father (John Kavazos) and his two brothers (Nickolas and Angelo) immigrated to Australia in 1908 leaving their village of Zaglanikianika. I returned in 2001 with my father and planning to return again in July 2013. If anyone has any information regarding this family history I would love to make contact with you. Regards Margaret

What a great site! Hi Aunty Chris :) (Chris Goopy)
My biological Father came to Australia from Mitata in 1943 from what we can discern. His name was Minas Preneas and I did not meet him until I was 30 and unfortunately only one meeting. Is there anyone out there who might know some information regarding my heritage.
