Yiayia Saved Christmas Cards from Greece


My yiayia saved most of the correspondence that she received from Greece. This is a Christmas post card that I believe was received sometime in the 1960’s. Don’t overlook this type of treasure – someone in your family might be the one that keeps all this old “stuff”. Luckily my mother and father were not the type to throw these out. This is another great source of information – Who sent it? Do they mention any other family members? What address was it sent from? The handwriting might be hard to decipher, but sit down with your Greek-English dictionary and the Greek handwriting samples on HellenicGenealogyGeek.com – give it a try.

Good luck with your Greek family genealogy research.
