Hi, my name is Brian Farrell ( Cape Town, South Africa) and I am tring to get any information on my grandfather's side of the family.
He was one of three siblings, Anthippe( b 1884, Potamos, Kythera ), Menelaus ( b 9/12/1888, Egypt), my grandfather and Hercules (b ?). The family name was changed to Farrell either in the UK or In SA to which they emigrated in the early 1900's.
Menelaus married Antoinette Heick ( 1919) and had three children, George, Katina, Leonidas ( my father , b1924- ).
Leonidas married Eileen Thelma van Niekerk in 1951, having three children, Pamela, Clive, Brian (b 1955- ).
Anthippe married Theodore Mentis. They had eight children( Mary, Angelo, Sappho, George, Demetrius, Helen, Katherine and Andrew).
Further information that I have is , my great grandfather's sister, Marigo Fardouli married Panagiotes Michaletos. Panagiotes' parents were Nikolaos Michaletos and Martha(Tsakonas) Michaletos married 25/7/1838 in St Georges Church Kythera.
Any information which will help me establish the names of my great grand parents ( paternal first name and maternal family name) will be greatly appreciated.
