Giasas! ti kanete;

My father Giorgos Nenes and my mother Panayotitsa Cominos were born in Potamos Kythera, but moved to and married in Australia. The Nenes family of nine immigrated to Australia and the USA.

My two sons Vasili, Minas and my husband Bill love travelling, having visited Greece many times and always stay in the great old Potamos house. We are planning another trip to the USA this year (2009). Who knows, this time may even get to meet a Nenes New Yorker :) Pios Xseri

Naste Kala,

Also I could not find my papou ( grandfathers ) grave tombstone. can you help? Also I found my grandmother tombstone but it does not say when maria dapontes ( or maria triarhi) passed away . can you assist?

16151 Giorgios Sotirios - barcelona, spain


I must say I was pleasantly surprised by kythera this past summer. Having intended to stay a mere day, I strung it out to 5 when I finally detached myself from Aphrodite's embrace 'if that sounds a cliche, wait, there's more'... Great beauty and a car means you can access its hidden treasures, beaches, towns, and people. There is a strong matriarchal quality to the place that is life/affirming. It's an island with lots to offer and with mystery in the air. This is the highest compliment since I dont come from Tsirigo, and was critical beforehand.

16148 Mat Cassimatis - Brisbane, Australia


Must admit, i come from the best family name in Kythera "CASSIMATIS". If you havn't met one before then do so, they're beautiful honest people. Though i suppose most Kytherian's are the same.

Mr.Stathatos, thank you for your speech and presentation of phtographs on the 22nd of August 2008 in Hora.
I would like to advise you that during your speech, you referred to a photograph ( Frame 3, PF0051(B) G2) as Councilors from Karvounades. They were in fact councilors from Hora. Thanks again for the wonderful work you have done.
