Greek Ancestry in Middletown, Ohio


GREEK ANCESTRY IN MIDDLETOWN, OHIO
(also includes parts of Butler, Warren, Montgomery and Hamilton Counties)


This is a very interesting website for anyone with family of Greek descent from this area.  I haven't done an exact count, but there seems to be a few thousand names, along with associated information and many photographs.


"This web site was developed to help identify Greek immigrants who lived in Middletown, Ohio. The names of Greek immigrants when translated into English were spelled in various ways on official documents. Also the immigrant changed his or her English name from time to time. This file groups the names as spelled in recent years and sometimes includes the spellings as found on the original documents,which were researched as indicated in "Research Sources" (index Tab 11.)  For example, Demetrion is seen as Demetriou, etc. The same is true for the spellings of villages and cities i.e.  Modern Brusa, Turkey is spelled Brussa on many documents, Bursa on others.
