you refer to a privately -owned churh on the road to melidoni .would that be the church of the panaretos family ?
Cousin Basil, your family history in the opening web page is a wonderful insight to so much, and generates a great many memories. Sadly I fear much of my own family history may be lost, and may rest with cousin Andonis who now lives in his father's family residence in Mitata, and with his mother, my Aunty Katarina. My father, John Anthony (Ianis Andonis) Psaltis (Protopsaltis), born 4/12/1900 was brought to Aus by older brother Spiros in 1920, married Alice Henderson in Wagga Wagga in 1940. As with so many others, my brother and I have been fortunate in the choice of our parents and in the paths they took in providing for us. Thank you for this website, I look forward to learning much from it.
I would like to thank Mr Emmanuel Pappos for his generous donation of the Kytherian surname book to the Ithacan Historical Society. Thanks also to his mother Effie, who made the necessary connections. This will be of great assistance to me personally in my preparation of my own work on Ithacan surnames. It will also be a valuable asset as part of the IHS collection. Mr Kalligeros has set a very high standard. If I can achieve half as much I will be satisfied.
I married a beautiful woman who is Kytherian, and I am proud of her.The family surname is spelt Kontoleon in Australia. This site is fantastic. We have been back to Kythera in 2005 and 2006, I have heaps of pics and I will register and upload a few of them. This is one of the few most beautiful parts of the world. I am so proud to be an "adopted kytherian".
God Bless and Yasoo,

This is an interesting site and a great way to see how we're all interconnected. My father, Panayioti Megaloconomos is from Livathi and my mother, Anezina Megaloconomos (maiden name, Londakis) is from Fratsia. Both of them live in Brisbane Australia. If anyone out there is doing a family tree with the Megaloconomos family, please let me know and hopefully I can help you out with a bit of information.

Hi to all my fellow Kytherians out there in the world!Anyone who would like to chat is welcome!
I just wanted to say how fantastic this site is, and how excited I am to finally be able to learn about my family heritage and hopefully get to know some long lost relatives! My grandfather Peter Marios born in 1909 in Diakofti came out to Sydney, Australia approximately in the 1920's, but I dont know much more than this. He did however have three children: Nicholas(my father), John and Maria, who all appear rather clueless about their father's origins. Hopefully someone out there can help me put the pieces of the puzzle together so I can discover my identity!
Thanks to all the contributors for keeping this site growing and growing!
