THE GENEALOGIST'S DICTIONARY, Basic vocabulary for reading old Greek documents
Our friend, Gregory Kontos (gkfamilytrees.com), has published a booklet titled THE GENEALOGIST'S DICTIONARY, Basic vocabulary for reading old Greek documents.
I received a copy of it today and will be keeping this handy booklet close by as I try to decipher Greek documents.
“One of the hardest aspects of Greek genealogy is reading and translating the old Greek records. Based on our team’s research experience, this dictionary was created to help English-speaking researchers translate and understand basic lines of an old Greek document. We managed to create a wide database of more than 400 words, which, expanding geographically and socially, wishes to cover the most crucial translational needs of a Hellenic genealogist”.
