my GGrandfather George and his wife Maria Vourvachakis:
MARIA IS THE WIFE OF GEORGE'S SON, STELLIOS.
Vourvachakis is a Cretan name. "Βουρβαχακης" It comes from Vourvachis (Βουρβαχης) and means "The Little Vourvachis".
In other words, you are related to all with the name Vourvachis (including those in Kephalonia)
*Could you tell me where you found the source of such great information.
I talk to old people and keep records.
Stellios (who married Maria Vourvachakis) had two children. Evangelos "Angelos" born 1892 and Eleni born ca. 1895, In know nothing more.
It is certain the there is a brother called George born 1890
- My mothers godfather was Steve Damos.
GODFATHERS ARE IRRELEVANT.
-Fathers full name: Stilianos Yeoryiladakis
That should read: Styllianos Georgiou Ladakis
Mothers full name: Mariyo Mburmbahaki
(Both written by Angelos)
The correct spelling is FYTROS (Fytro is a new plant εμβρυο. Τhe Verb is Fytrono (Φυτρωνω) = I germinate). Fytrakis = The little Embryo
The correct spelling is Fytros (Fytrakis) but Fitros and Fitrakis is OK.
I will check the rest.
Maria Vourvachakis may have two brothers or two Cousins in USA. Emmanuel must be her brother (born 1888) and Michael maybe her Cousin? Brother? Nephew?
