I was at my Aunt’s house last week and remembered that she had the Funeral Register (or Guest Book) from my paternal grandfather’s wake in 1964. I sat down with her and my mother and we went through the book. What a great find! Not only did it help them remember stories, but we ran across names of cousins and spouses on my father’s side I didn’t know about before.
Ask around and see if one of your family members is in possession of the Guest Book from one of your relative’s wake. It’s a great way to help your older relative’s remember stories you would love to hear.
Good luck with your Greek genealogy research.
