Greek State Archives - Digital Collections - Great Genealogy Resource for Greece Research




Note:  You will have to be able to recognize the name you are researching in Greek (some recorded in typed form - much easier to recognize - some names are manually recorded in handwriting, and also the area they originated from in Greece.  On a personal level - I am far from an expert in this area.  Over the next week I will post some of my own tricks and guides - don't be intimidated, give it a try!  

"The archival collections kept in the General State Archives
are an integral part of our cultural heritage. 
The way both state and citizens deal with their issues, 
small and large, is documented in those collections. 
The wealth of information provided is impressive and 
 encompasses every aspect of social, political, economic 
and scientific as well as every other activity 
of the nation.


The integrated application software @ρχειομνήμων allows 
navigation through the archival collections originating from 
37 agencies of the General State Archives all over Greece 
as well as searching for and accessing specific documents on-line.


Besides the on-line access to the digitized collections, the system 
also supports navigation through the finding aids of all the state 
archival agencies,updated regularly with any newly arranged or 
digitized collections.


Seven million pages at your disposal…


Navigate wisely!"
