Discover Your Roots Day Aug. 12, 2006

Take 38 Diaspora Kytherians, lock them in the Kythera Town Hall for 6 hours and what do you get? An enormous amount of knowledge-exchange. This year’s “Discover Your Roots” meeting on August 12. saw a great mixture of people from 3 continents learn more about the island in a few hours than most of us do in a month on the island. As usual, the participants themselves, in recounting their family histories and their experiences on the island, provided a colourful start to the proceedings. A special highlight this year was a tour of the Castro Archives and the Church of St. Theodore by high-school-teacher, folk-singer and heritage professional Eleni Harou, who sacrificed her midday break to give us a fascinating insight into the history of the island and the archives. She also helped many of the group de-cypher Venetian census data. We intend to repeat the event next year so make sure you’re on the island in mid-August 2007!

Kythera and the Gerokomio

Tom Coroneos, a fellow Kytherian and world traveler from Oakland, California, spent two months on the island of Kythera in 2001. During the month of September, he rented an apartment across the street from the gerokomio (old folks home) in Potamos. Each morning, he would walk across the street with his boom box and play CDs for the old folks. Little by little they became great friends and companions. Tom was especially received by a white haired gentleman named Nikos Bernardos.
On the links to these webpages are video clips from the times he spent with the people from the gerokomio.
