Hello Stamatis,

 

I must say I love your country, I have visited Athens, Corfu, Crete, Rhodes, Cyprus and my favourite Zakynthos.

 

I will research your question in the morning, I am living on your euro time.

So Brendan,


you have visited Greece?Thanks for your good words.As for Zakynthos if I exclude the coast of the shipreck which is unic.I didnot like the island.


If you have not visited Leykada and Kefalonia you must put them in your next destination.Kefalonia is the most beautiful island of Ionian sea in my opinion.


O.k. thanks again.I am going to bed now it is 00:18 a.m. here.


Have a nice day there.

Hello Stamatis,

 

I have travelled the whole coast of Zakynthos, I have visited the shipwreck, I forgot to say Kefalonia, I have visited there as well. I understand that Madonna has a holiday home there. Beautifull Island.

Hi Brendan,


I have just received an email from just answered informing me that I have a reply but I cannot see anything else except the conversation we had about your travel in Greece.


Is the answer in my question some where else in the site?Or there is not an answer yet?


 


Thank you for your help

Hello again,

Thanks for using Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do whatever I can to try to help you.

 

Please understand that genealogy research takes hours of time. We do not have answers at the tips of our fingers, but must spend the time looking for information in our dozens of databases.

 

IT IS KNOWN IN OUR FAMILY THAT HE LEFT U.S.A. ON THE NOVEMBER OF 1912 TO RETURN IN GREECE AND FIGHT AS A VOLUNTEER AT THE BALKAN WARS.
AFTER THE END OF THE WAR HE RETURNED BACK TO U.S.A.

1.I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT WAS THE EXACT DATE HE LEFT U.S.A. IN 1912 THE NAME OF THE SHIP AND THE PORT OF ARRIVAL IN EUROPE(THE DESTINATION).

 

There is no passenger list online of his leaving the US or arriving in Greece.

 



2. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHEN DID HE CAME BACK TO GREECE WITH HIS BROTHER DEMITRIOS AT THE DECADE OF 1930.(THE EXACT DATE OF DEPARTURE,THE NAME OF THE SHIP AND THE DESTINATION OF THE SHIP IN EUROPE).


There is no record online of either of them leaving or entering Greece. Of course, Greece has never put records online.

 

Most passenger records are not available online.

 

You may be able to see if the archives in Greece have information on old passenger records, but they are not online. The US also doesn't have much information on departing passengers, just those entering the USA, and not many after about 1925 are available online.

 

 

Best regards,
