Greetings to all Kythirians from
"KYTHIRA ASSOCIATION of NEW YORK USA"
Peter Panaretos Treasurer/secretary
I have photos of Dad in the Greek Navy, of him in the Australian Air Force, his mother, her sister, uncle Andrew and his wife, all my brothers and sisters and all family members and history.
As I am 65 now, and was the only one with Dad until he died with his history - which is very very interesting.
His nickname was Palavras.
Vale Theodore William Gavrily: Born Narrabri NSW 11/12/1924 - Died Manly, Australia 28/8/04.
Finally I have registered more than 12 months after Dad's passing. As it is when a patriarch leaves us, we struggle to recall what was such a familiar past when spoken so fondly by the man himself.
It is difficult to remember the many names of Dad's friends that were a great part of country NSW/Qld community last century. It didn't matter which country town I mentioned, Dad knew someone, a Kytherian inveriably, with a story or two to tell. I'm sure that some stories have been passed on to the next generation and we can share a rich & proud past with our kids.
It would be greatly appreciated that if you or your parents knew of Theo and want to share any good stories with me or simply say gidday.
Next time I log on I will tell you the one about the Greek who caused the match factory to strike!
The best way to descibe Kythera is that there is no way. It is so incredible, not because of the food or housing but the beauty. As many have said Kythera is a place, a place we will always remember, and it will always hold a place in all our hearts. When I first arrived I must admit I didn't see much of it. I only saw thorns and spiders but I didn't see the beauty behind it; the life, the ocean, and most of all, the people.
The man I love has family on the island, and I would dearly like to find out as much as I can about them. I am led to believe there is a family home in the bay Kapsali - the family name is Kynigalakis. The fathers name was Con Kynigalakis, he had maybe two brothers, Stan and Myron. The sons names are George Con Kynigalakis, Myron Kynigalakis and Stan Kynigalakis. Please contact me with any information. I would especially like to see some photos of the house.
I am delighted to find my greek heritage on this site. I am the youngest daughter of MARGARET CASSIMATY, granddaughter of George Michael Cassimaty born 23/4/1887.Thank you
