Galanis, Demetrius, from Limni, Evia

Classification: Query
Surnames: Galanis, Vlahakis
I am trying to find out more about my grandfather, Demetrius Galanis, who came to South Africa as an adult sometime around 1910. He met my grandmother, a South African, and they married and lived in Bulawayo, Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) before moving to Cape Town abt 1922/3. He was a hairdresser but at some stage also a general dealer. They divorced in 1933, and he returned to Limni sometime before WWII. During the war he lived in the mountains for 3 years with the Allies/Greek resistance.
It is possible his father's name was Athanasius. In Limni there were 2 female relatives I'm aware of: Sofia (surname unknown)and Haris Vlahakis.
Can anyone help? Thank you!
