6290: Panaretos Family in Greece, Australia, USA

submitted by Peter Trearchis on 11.01.2005

I am trying to get as much info as possible on any Panaretos family trying to either connect as many as I can or to fit my great-grandmother Mary Panaretos (b. 1860's) and her sister Erifyli into it. Any info anyone has on any Panaretos family would be great to add to my data.

6377:In reply to Dean Trearchis,re Marselos/Panaretos connection.
I can only tell you that my grandfather Peter Marselos b.15sept.1898, Keramouto,Kythera,arrived in Australia 24sept 1913, on the "Caledonian",with his uncle.I do not know the name of his uncle,but I do know that Peter Marselos had 6 sisters,and he was the only male child.I remember that he had relatives in Egypt and America.I hope this may be of help.

7041:My father was Menas Psalidas (1906-1955) who came to Australia in 1828 and married Stamatina Frilingos (1916- present) here in 1935. Menas Psalidas was born in Potamos, Kythera. My mother remembers that my fathers mother (ie. my grandmother) was Maria Panaretos. She had a sister Helen Zaglas and two brothers who all lived in Greece.

Maria Panaretos’ children included my father Menas, Leo Psalidas, Panagiotis Psalidas, Ourania Gouzely, Katerina and two girls who died at 13 and 20 years of age respectively.

I hope this helps in your search for your family history.
