Yeoryi Dimitri Tzortzopoulos (1872?-1918), and Olympia Tzortzopoulos (nee, Tzortzopoulos), (? - 1960), Karavas, Kythera.

[In the photograph above, the portrait of my grandmother has been superimposed next to the portrait of my grandfather. My grandfather never knew my grandmother - at the age she is portrayed in this photograph. The reason will become obvious if you proceed to read their life stories below. The picture represents the idealised relationship between the two, from my grandmother's perspective.]

Yeoryi Dimitri Tzortzopoulos was born in Karavas in the 1870's. His parachoukli ...

Harry Aliferis on a fishing vessel at Neapolis, early 1930's.

Harry is the strong young man in the centre. He would have been about 19-20 years of age at the time.

I include this photograph because a number of Kytherians would have worked on such boats prior to WWII.

It would be interesting to see photographs of those boats, etc etc.

The whole "sea" culture that derives from being a small isolated island has barely been explored at kythera-family to date
(Oct, 2004).

Aliferis bothers, Harry & Yanni, in a group Navy portrait, c.1936.

Harry Aliferis is on the extreme right, top row.
Yannis (John) Aliferis is in the centre of the front row.

Two years later, Harry would migrate to Australia.

Another entry at History, subsection, Archives/Research outlines a brief biography of Harry Aliferis:

"Born: 13.11.1914, Lahi, Greece
Wife, Maria (nee, Dermatis), from Neapolis.

Harry Aliferis, with navy friend, Athens, 15th June, 1936.

Two years later, Harry would migrate to Australia.

[I include this entry for the tangential reason that a number Kytherians
a. joined the Navy as a means of obtaining good, steady employment
b. found their way to Australia, by virtue of being with the Navy - military or merchant.

Do you have photographs of fathers, uncles, grandfather's - during their navy service?]
