My brother told me about this site. The Tziolis farm mentioned in the early 1940's was papu's parents (Christos Tziolis) farm. It was interesting to read about it having heard about the farm from Papu. If anyone else has any other stories from then, I'd love to hear as Papu has passed away and we have no-one to tell us about our heritage.

My people left Kythera and went to Smyrna. My grandfather Theodore was in the wine, ouzo and brandy distilling business. My father Minas left after 1920 for Istanbul, Marsailes, Tampico then the U.S. He last had a restaurant in Detroit seating 500. 10 years after he passed away I opted out and went back to Law School. I guess I'm sort of retired at 76.

This site would have to be one of the most important deeds by any Kytherian.The new generation ask questions daily about their ancestors and the island history.This site also gives them the opporunity to undestand and learn the Kytherian culture. Great site by great Kytherians. Bravo!!!

Steve Fatseas - Everett, WA USA

This is such a great site!! I am finding out more and more information about my ancestors every day. Keep up the great work.

Details: My Papou's name was Eugene Fatseas and I believe his fathers name was Nikolaos Fatseas. My Yia-Yia's name was Maria. I'm not sure of her maiden name yet. I believe both Papou and Yia-Yia were born in 1880. I also do not know the town of origin. They had 4 children, Nicolaos (1904), Dimitrios (1905), Helen (1915), and Anastasia (Daisy-1916). Both Nicolaos and Dimitrios were born in Smyrna. They emigrated to the USA on the Themistocles on July 9, 1914. Helen and Daisy were born in the USA. I am researching more information regarding my ancestors so if you have ANY information, please feel free to contact me.

Both my grandparents were
Kytherian, and both had the same surname, Cominos & Kominos. My grandmother Eleni's father came from Dorianika, and my grandfather Cosma came from Perleyianika. Both came from large families, 10 siblings on each side. I have visited Kythera 3 times over the years and just adore it. I hope to go back again soon Congratulations on the website.
