Surnames S thru Z - Index "Greece as Last Residence" in Philadelphia Passenger Lists

PART 6 - SURNAMES S THROUGH Z 
This is an index to people stating Greece as their Last Residence in the "Index of Passenger Lists of Vessels Arriving at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 1800-1945".   I have done my best to transcribe this information accurately.  I would encourage you to look at the original records wherever possible.   There may be other people of Greek descent included in the original records that are not transcribed here.  You can view actual images at Ancestry.comor reference the National Archives Website, or the website for the FamilyHistory Library, Salt Lake City Use this Index as an additional tool that may be of help in locating those hard to find  ancestors.  As in most passenger records and indexes - many of the names are not spelled correctly - either by the original transcriber, or by the person typing the index, so keep an open mind.
