Hellenic Genealogical Queries
Surname Listings


Note to researchers: Surnames may be cross-listed under village/city, county, prefecture or province, and region of origin (also diaspora communities), making queries more effective. Multiple listings take advantage of close village and regional associations, relationships so integral to Hellenic culture; persons from the same village or area may possess knowledge of the target family.

The political organization of the Greek countryside has changed dramatically over the last few years in response to fiscal belt-tightening. Many former municipalities (dimoi) and eparchies, among other self-governing administrative units, now find themselves integrated into larger adminstrative areas. Our queries pages were designed while Greece was following the Kapodistria administrative plan, allowing for many more small and self-governing bodies. Since that time, the Kallikrates plan has been implemented. Nevertheless, we will continue to post queries as though the Kapodistria plan were still in effect, unless we see clear evidence that implementation of the Kallikrates plan will not be reversed in the next couple of years and unless we see evidence of a type of redistricting.

Thus far, most of the changes that have taken place are simply downgradings of the level of self-government. For example, a former village with its own self-governing village council, has now probably become a municipal precinct with just an advisory body or a council with diminished decision-making capability. Likewise, an independent municipality may now seen as a precinct within the larger prefecture. Administrative decision-making has, in effect, been bumped up the chain of organization as the status of each level of administration has been downgraded. And this means that the relationship of a small village to surrounding larger towns and cities has been rather preserved, with changes made only to the level of decision-making (and of course, to the level of funding). As of December 2012, we have seen very few instances of re-organization of villages and cities, a re-combining of these units into new groupings, i.e., changing the relationship of a village with its former municipal seat to become a member of a different municipality or municipal district. If reorganization of the queries should be necessary as a result of marked changes in Greece, we will continue to follow our philosophy of cross-listing queries in as many administrative units as possible.
