How to search the 40,000+ Greek Names posted in the Hellenic Genealogy Geek blog
How to search the 40,000+ Greek Names posted in the Hellenic Genealogy Geek blog.
Over the past few years I have made many blog postings on HellenicGenealogyGeek.com that include over 40,000+ names of our Greek ancestors. The postings include names from the Greek General Election Lists from the mid-1800s, names from books and articles about our history in Greece and the worldwide diaspora, names indexed from databases, military records and more.
I believe the most effective way to search for your family names in the HellenicGenealogyGeek.com blog is by using an advanced Google search. Note: To my knowledge Google does not allow you to use a wild card search within a word. Too bad since most of our family names are spelled in various ways. If anyone knows how to do this please share with the group.
The following example is based on my Manousos family line, in the U.S. this name is usually spelled as Manusos. How can I search for both names or alternate spellings at the same time?
I would type the following into the Google search box –
Manousos OR Manusos site:https://hellenicgenealogygeek.blogspot.com
