Story: Resolving a 100 Year Vendetta and Celebrating the Cretan Way
Nikos Pentheroudakis has used MyHeritage to build 3 family trees about his family and village in Crete. Join him as he discovers the origins of his family and tries to resolve a blood feud that has lasted 114 years!
Up until 1717, the surname Pentheroudakis didn't exist anywhere in the world, not even in Greece. The name first appeared in Crete, and all the people with that name and their families ultimately come from Crete. I set off to find all the Pentheroudakis' in the world, and my findings have been very remarkable!
