1,000+ Greeks, 1919-1924 Canadian Ocean Arrivals

On November 25, 2009 completed the online launch of the Canadian Passenger Lists, 1919-1924. I visited and did a search in this new database for people born in Greece -- 1,065 results were returned. As usual, there are some results that don’t seem to make sense, but most are Greek surnames. If you have ancestors that arrived in Canada during the 1919-1924 time frame, this may be a very helpful resource. Apparently this is the only online source for this data to-date. Remember that if you don’t want to purchase a membership to, most libraries have an version that you can use in the Library for FREE. - Also, is currently offering a 14 day free trial.

Here is today’s Greek recipe. Spinach with Rice (Spanakorizo)Ingredients:2 lbs. spinach1 cup chopped onions½ cup olive oil1-1/2 cups short grain rice2 tablespoons lemon juice1 tablespoon dill3 cups watersalt and pepperDirections:Wash spinach. Remove stems, drain leaves well and tear into pieces. (If I use baby spinach I don’t bother to try and remove stems, just use as is) In a deep pan gently fry onion in oil until soft. Stir in rice and cook 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients (except spinach). Bring to a boil and then add spinach. Stir well, cover and cook gently for 15 minutes. (I always check to make sure rice is done – sometimes it takes a little longer to get done.) Remove from heat, leave tightly covered and allow to stand for 5 minutes before serving.Hope you enjoy it!Georgia Keilmanhttp://HellenicGenealogyGeek.comA resource for Greek family genealogy research.
