Cinema Research 5: Appendix 5: Naturalisation Information, including Naturalisation Certificate Number, of Greek Cinema

During the 1990's KEVIN CORK undertook extensive research into cinema's in Australia.

Tragically, he died before completing his work, but most of the chapters of his Thesis, were completed.

His wife and children have kindly given permission for his work to be reproduced.

Most Australian's would be unaware of the degree to which Greeks, and particularly Kytherian Greeks dominated cinema ownership in Australia - especially in New South Wales.

This is Appendix 5 of Kevin Cork's previously unpublished Ph.D thesis.

In Appendix 5, Kevin Cork provides us naturalisation information, including certificate numbers, of the 66 Greek, and Greek-Kytherian cinema owners he chose to be the subject of his study.

He managed, whilst writing his Ph.D to follow most until their demise, or their return to Greece.

The importance of the Hellenic and Kytherian contribution to Australian cinema ownership and history is clearly demonstrated in Appendix 5.

It is difficult to know how to pass on to Kytherians the results of Kevin Cork's important research's.

In the end, I felt that the results should be passed on in the most extensive way - i.e. in full re-publication of all Chapter's and Appendices.

Eventually all Chapters and Appendices will appear on the kythera-family web-site.

Other entries can be sourced by searching under "Cork" on the internal search engine.

I have also placed him under People, subsection, High Achievers, for reasons that become obvious once you have read the contents of his thesis.

You will notice that information for some entries is incomplete. If you can provide information that will complete such entries please post to the kythera-family web-site.

Note: Unfortunately, a number of family members were unable to supply exact naturalisation details about their fathers. The Australian Archives (Sydney) has naturalisation records to 1937 which are available to the public. After that year, only Archive Staff are given access to the records as they fall within what has been designated a restricted period. Over six weeks, Archive Staff endeavoured to ascertain appropriate details but were not very successful. This was the result of two problems. Firstly, the Staff's time was limited and, secondly, with the variety of spelling of Greek names, it was not always possible to find the correct people in the files. Although many personal details were supplied for each man (eg date of birth), it was not possible for the writer to be present in order to suggest alternative spellings, etc.

The above 29 appear to be a representative group. The following table presents the material in a quantitative manner and the reader can see the average age at which these men were naturalised and the number of years they stayed in Australia prior to naturalisation.
