Book: Greek Community of London - 1,423 Greek Names

I found another great book - "The Greek Community of London" by Timotheos Catsiyannis, Bishop of Militoupolis, Dean of the Greek Cathedral in London - published in 1993.  

He did a fabulous job, creating a very interesting and thorough book that has 783 pages and  what must be approximately 1,000 photographs and copies of documents ( I didn't do an exact count).  

Bishop Catsiyannis also included family trees for the following families of Greek descent:

Rallis Family Tree - (Stefanos Rallis (Born 1690) and Marietta Mavrocordatou)
Mavrocordato Family Tree
Franghiadis Family Tree
Argenti Family Tree
Rodocanachi Family Tree - (Merele branch)
Paul Rodocanachi & Marigo A. Ralli Family Tree
Rodocanachi Family Tree (begins Emmanuel Rodocanachi 1716-1790)
Schilizzi Family living in England (begins Hadzi-zannis Lourentzis Schilizzi (1720-1800) & Franga Avierinou (1738-1806)
Family Tree of Marica Omirou & Elias Mich. Eliadis
Family Tree of Elena E. Venizelou (her mother's family)
Schilizzi Family Tree (Iatroi branch)
Mavrojani Family Family Tree
Scaramanga Family Tree

As usual, I was able to borrow this book through my local library's Inter-library Loan program.  

You can view the TABLE OF CONTENTS at the end of this post.

Good luck with your Greek family genealogy research.

  1. are there copies for sale ? i tried searching the internet but no luck

  2. Marina - I am sorry, but I didn't find this book available either, through Amazon or ABE books. You might want to try searching for an online used book seller in the United Kingdom. I don't know where you are located, but I was able to borrow it through the Worldcat Interlibrary Loan Program at my local library.

  3. If only you knew what John D. Criticos was before his arrival on the scene in 1950 - Posted by Dimitris Konstantine Pateras
