Greek Community in St. Louis ca.1910

Looking for anyone who is researching the Greek immigrants from the early 1900's through the 1920's. I have found a few BIRBILIS men who all moved to what looks like 206 W 56th, St. Louis - on the Ellis Island site. The manifest image isn't very clear & I'm not familiar with the area at all. They were from Psathopirgos, which is the village "my" BIRBILIS family is from. I would like to find out where they ended up.

Any ideas on the best way to research them would be appreciated.

Dear Karen,

I would start with censuses since Missouri censuses have the soundex/miracode for 1900, 1910 & 1920.

Also, you can ask the St. Louis Public Library for copies of the city directories. See following website.

Also, check out the obits that have been indexed for the POst-Dispatch. It is one of the links on the above website.

Maybe try finding a church that they may have belonged to? I am assuming that they would be Greek Orthodox. If by chance they were Catholic, the St. Louis Archdiocesean (spelling?) records are on microfilm and available thru the Mormon church.
