LOST MEMBER OF THYMARAS FAMILY

My grandfather Georgios D. Thymaras left Spetses Island in the 1920's to immigrate to the United States. He was about to return when he suddenly died. None of his children ever got to meet their extended family members until the year of 2000. He changed his sir name to Spetsas after the name of the island; It has been rumored in the family that his grandfather changed his name from Christakis after leaving Kriti, but this part has not yet been verified.
