Great site - Peter Michael Marendy

submitted by Peter Michael Marendy on 01.05.2005

This is a great site. My father Minas (Michael) Peter Marendy was born in Atherton in 1945 to Greek parents who were from Fratsia. My Grandfather Peter Michael Marendy migrated to Australia in 1924. I believe my grandfather was the first of his family to come out to Australia and establish successful milkbars in both Atherton and Mareeba. The name 'Marendy' can still be seen adorning a set of shops in Atherton which he built in 1954. He and my grandmother Loula / Theadora Marendy (maiden name Mavromati) had four children: Mina (my father), John, Christie, and Chrissie.

Hi Peter
I'm trying to piece together my family tree. Does your family have any connection to (Cosmas) Charles Marendy who owned Townsville Cafe in the 1920's. Thanks Cos Marendy
