My mother was born on April 15, 1938 in Perlegianika.
Her parents were Peter Con Anastaspoulos and Barbara Komninou. Peter's parents were Con and Eleni and Barbara's parents were Denis and Kyrani (Castrisios).
In 1956, when Kyrani was 18, she left Kythera to begin a new life in Australia where her two brothers, Con and Denis, were already living having arrived a few years earlier.
This photo was taken on a trip to Wollongong.

Stefanos Moulos was from Logothetianika. He arrived in Australia with his wife, Stavroula Kalopedis and their daughter Ekaterini (Katina) sometime in the 1920s.
Katina married Peter Steve Zantiotis in 1926. They had three children, Steve, Stephen (my dad) and Arthur.
The date when this photo was taken is unknown.
My dad, Stephen Zantiotis, was born in Weston (near Singleton) on March 10, 1928. I'm guessing this was taken about 1929 - 1930. Stephen's parents were Peter Steve Zantiotis from Agia Anastasia and Ekaterini (Katina) Moulos from Logothetianika.
This was taken on November 19, 1956 on the occasion of the wedding of Stephen Zantiotis to Anna (Kyrani) Anastasopoulos - my parents.
My dad is on the left followed by his parents, Ekaterini (Moulos) and Peter then his brother Arthur.
The wedding was held at Agia Triada in Sydney.
