MUNICIPALITY OF SELLASIAS, Lakonia - 1872 Greece General Election Lists: includes Communities of Sellasias, Konidtsas, Kalyvia, Theologou, Voitianon, Kloda, Vroulia - GREEK/ENGLISH Translation

Image
The digital collections of the Greek State Archives offer a wealth of information to those of us interested in Greek genealogy.  Included are the "1872 General Election Lists" for each Municipality.  Each row includes:  Line # - Given Name, Surname - Age - Father's Name - Occupation.
This is a GREAT resource, but very difficult to navigate for those who do not read Greek.
I have translated these pages and made them available in both GREEK and ENGLISH for the MUNICIPALITY OF SELLASIAS which includes the communities of Sellasias, Koniditsas, Kalyvia, Theologou, Voutianon, Kloda, and Vroulia.  -- There are 678 males listed in this Election List which include 233 different Family Names (Surnames).  I have listed these Surnames at the bottom of this blog posting for your review.  You will be able to view the full translation of the records in the PDF linked below.
