Yet another photo from my father's 1929 trip to Kythera. On the steps of my grandfather's house at Logothetianica with many of the same people as in the other photos. I am hoping that others who view these pictures can help identify some of the people, whom I don't know.
My grandfather Demetrios is at the top step in the middle smiling. My father is at the top step all the way to the right. The tall man far left standing at the top may be my father's uncle - my grandmother's brother, ...
More family from my dad's trip to Kythera in 1929. I recognise a few people like 2 of my cousins and my father and grandfather and also an aunt Foto, who was married to my mother's brother Alex Panaretos and whose maiden name was Feros. She is wearing the dark hat and the long necklace.

Another shot from my father's visit to Kythera in 1929 . I only recognise my father and the rest I leave up to others from Kythera that might be able to identify who they are.
On both sides of my family , I am related to the Christianos, the Sophios, the Panaretos, the Malos families. So some of these might be those relatives.

At my grandfather's house in 1929 . My father, Nicholas Gavriles (4th from the left standing in the rear row) came to visit my grandfather Demetrios Gavriles (far right standing rear row). Some of the others I do not know. My father's brother Peter and 2 of my cousins are standing in the tree, my aunt, Peter's wife, Pagonitsa is standing to the right of my father. She is from the Sophios clan I think. The rest I do not know.

Peter was originally from the village Karavas, Kythera. He migrated to Australia and lived in Sydney, NSW.
This photograph was probably taken during a return visit to the island.

This photo was probably taken at the old cafe at the "platia" in Mitata in around 1930. The man on the left is my uncle Peter Haniotis (Aglacitis). The man sitting to the right of the waiter looks like a Protopsaltis (Tsagarominas/Tsagaromichalis?), and second from the right looks like it could be Stefos Protopsaltis (Matzoros).
This is an enlargement of the faces in a photo already submitted to this site ("Spring at Mitata"). Can anyone recognise the people in this picture?

This picture of the sping and grotto just below Mitata must have be taken pre 1952 when the wash-tub and improved irrigation system was built there. I have also put to enlarged versions of this picture on this site so the faces are big enough to recognise. Can anyone recognise the people in this picture?

This group photo from Mitata (although it looks to me like it was taken from a balcony in Keramitianika, a subvillage of Mitata) must have been taken before 1939, because the white-haired man in the centre of the photo, Brettos Haniotis (Aglacitis), my great grandfather, died in that year. The only other people in the photo I can identify are Brettos Haniotis' second wife (to his right) and the young woman right in front of him holding a baby - that is Katarina Haniotis (a really lovely aunt of mine ...

The eldest Haniotis son - Dimitri - leaves for Australia. Next to him his father Brettos,on the far left his sister Froso. The identities of the other three women in the picture are unknown to me (can anyone help?).
I think he migrated in the late 20's or early 30's.
