CEMETERIES OF ST. JOHN CHURCH IN PUEBLO, COLORADO

I am excited to announce that The National Herald has given Hellenic Genealogy Geek the right to reprint articles that may be of interest to our group.

Beginning in the 1880*s, just as Greektowns were being established all across North America, the new immigrants also immediately sought out graveyards. Upon reflection, the fact that Greeks collectively purchased entire blocks of cemetery sites, often long before churches were physically built, should come as no surprise. Life in the ksentia was long understood to be dangerous, and by the standards of the day, Ameriki was especially so.

While it is fairly easy to learn about the histories of Greektowns all across North America, locating documentation on the history of Greek American graveyards is more difficult to systematically acquire. That's why…

There are many similarities between the history, sufferings and fate of the Jews who were living in Greece during the Second World War and the Occupation, and those of the same fate in other German-occupied territories, but there are also many differences. 
Extensive investigation has been going on for some years now into the tragic story of the Jews of that time, as part of international historical research into the Holocaust. Greek historians and researchers have written noteworthy and particularly interesting works documenting events, accounts and memories which should never be forgotten, and have made them ac…

1871 - Village of NEOCHORION, Municipality of Karyoupoleos, Region of Gythio, Greece - FREE Translation of 1871 General Election List

Image
The digital collections of the Greek State Archives offer a wealth of information to those of us interested in Greek genealogy.  As part of their online collection is the "Election Material From the Collection of Vlachoyiannis" .  This includes "General Election Lists" for each Municipality; recorded by community (city, village, settlement, etc.).
You can view a scanned copy of each list, printed in the Greek language.  This is a GREAT resource, but very difficult to navigate for those who do not read Greek.  Each row includes:  Line # -  Given Name, Surname - Father's Name -  Age - Occupation.
I have translated these pages and made them available in both Greek and English, doing my best to transcribe the information accurately.  I would always recommend viewing the original scanned copies (link below). 
- To the best of my knowledge, these lists include all Males who were eligible to vote in the elections.  
- Names are in alphabetical order by Given name (First n…
