Wedding of Panayoti Vaggis - Takis Vanges.

Placing of the stefana

Takis, was the name he was always affectionately called by his mother, Stamatoula Vaggis (nee, Coroneos), eldest daughter of Triunduphilos Koroneos, and Georgia Koroneos (nee, Mentis).

Takis was born in Kythera. Mother and father separated early in the marriage. Toula took her three sons to Germany, where they lived and worked for many years.

In her late 40's, Toula decided to migrate to Australia to be with her other 6 brothers and sisters.

Takis decided not to emigrate to Australia, and returned to Athens where he has lived ever since.

For the Coroneos family history, including a tragedy that was to befall his mother, and two younger brothers in Australia, see:

Con(standinos) George (Tzortzo)Poulos & Envangalia (Angie) Koroneos (Coroneos).

11th June, 1951.

The wedding was held in the Anglican Church, Goulburn, NSW.

Envangelia Triunduphilou Koroneos, Angie Koroneos, was born in Karavas.

Her parents were Triunduphilo Theothosios Koroneos, Belos, and Georgia Mentis, Menti

Her paternal grandparents were Theothosios Nickola Koroneos, and Stamatoula Koroneos. A photograph which includes her paternal grandparents

She was sponsored to Australia by her aunty and uncle, Peter and Chrisannthe (nee, Koroneos) Katsoolis, then living in Wyong NSW. Later they would retire to Rainbow Street, Kingsford.

Con George Poulos was born in Karavas in 1916. His parents were Yeoryi Dimitri Tzortzopoulos, and Olympia Tzortzopoulos.

Con arrived in Australia, as a member of the Greek Merchant Navy. He had been employed as a merchant mariner, for many years.

In Australia he went initially to visit sister Katina, and brother Myna in Goulburn, and Crookwell, before moving to work for, and for a short time, partner, brother Peter, in the Warren Fruit Shop.

The Warren shop was not large enough to support two families. Con ventured all over NSW in serach for a business to buy. Con learned of a business opportunity in the neighbouring central western town of Gilgandra. He purchased the Gilgandra Fruit Shop business at 41 Miller Street, Gilgandra, from fellow Kytherian, Jack Pentes in 1949. He paid £1,200 for the privelege.

After marrying in 1951, Con and Angie lived in Gilgandra for the next 20 years.

The wedding of Anastasios (Ernest) and Spiridoula (Lily) Combes/Coombes

Anastasios (Ernest)and Spiridoula (Lily) Combes/Coombes married in Kythera on 31st December, 1923. This photo has Spiridoula's mother standing next to her (we think) and her sister Stella (shorter lady with white scarf), who died at approximately 22 years of age.
Anastasios (Ernest) and Spiridoula (Lily) came to Australia on the ship, the "Largs Bay", arriving in August 1924. They went straight to Tenterfield, NSW, where they worked for Anastasios' brother, George Combes for a few years, before moving to Sydney.

Can anyone help with identifying any of the guests at this wedding?

Coroneos/Comino Wedding 1924

Wedding of Chris Coroneos (Christiforos Dimitriou Koroneos) and Melba Comino (Melpomeni Kosma Komino). 3rd July, 1924, Goulburn, NSW.

Both Chris and Melba were born in Karavas.

Chris's parents were Anna Kritharis, and Demetrios Melasofaos Koroneos.

Melba's parents were Anna (Kirranni) Tzortzopoulos Douris from Douranika, and Charles Kosma Komino.

I found this photograph in the collection of my paternal grandmother Olympia Pappayogiggi Tzortzopoulos in the patriko spitti, Karavas. My grandmother had married another Tzortzopoulos - Yeoryi - Hlihlis - also from Karavas. [Their life stories have been told in some detail on kythera-family, in various places, and can be accessed by utilising the internal search engine].

The fact this photograph occupied a significant pride of place in my grandmothers collection indicates to me that the Douris Tzortzopouli, and the Pappayogiggi Tzortzopouli were related in some way. Were the Hlihlis also related to the Douris's?

I am very interested to find out the basis of that connection.

Can anyone enlighten me?

Dimitri George (Tzortzo)Poulos and Athena Connell, marriage.

Marriage, of Dimitri George Poulos, (Tzortzopoulos), Hlihlis, Karavas, Greece, and Goulburn, New South Wales, and Athena Connell, Attika, Greece, and Goulburn NSW, on the 16th June 1926. The wedding took place in Sydney.

Photograph and life history of Dimitri's father, George, and mother, Olympia, Karavas

Dimitri left Karavas, Kythera in 1922(?).

The circumstances of his life were tragic.

He established himself in Goulburn, where he owned a Refreshment Room in the main street.

Dimitri died as the result of injuries sustained in a car accident in 1936. He was travelling by car to go and see business he was wanting to purchase, in a neighbouring town, (West Wylong?). My father recalls that a fellow Greek in the car with him was severely injured - but recovered. This person later established a shop in Dubbo, NSW. Mrs Anastasia (Tassia) Varvaressos (nee, Zervis), later to "adopt" second eldest son Haralambos (Harry)- recalls that 2-3 persons were killed in this accident. Goulburn newspaper reports would establish the exact toll of the car accident.

Letter of Athena (Tzortzo)Poulos to mother-in-law Olympia, explaining the circumstances of Dimitri's death

James is buried in Goulburn Cemetery.

A year later, wife Athena - died from cancer.

Leaving 4 young children under 6 years of age - George, Harry, Con and Olympia (Ollie) - without a parent.

No immediate Tzortzopoulos family support was available.

Panayoti was recently arrived and only 22 years of age. And James's other 6 brothers and sisters were in Karavas, Kythera, or Pireaus.
