North American Periodicals
There are societies of Greek immigrants from various localities in Greece that publish periodicals (see the “Societies” section). These are often published quarterly and may focus on the immigrants to a particular region, county, or town.
A genealogical periodical that is helpful for general Greek research information was published by the Greek Association of Family History and Tradition (SIPEO): Reezes: Newsletter of the Greek Association of Family History and Tradition(SIPEO). Salt Lake City, Utah, USA: Greek Association of Family History and Tradition, 1992–. (FHL book 949.5 D25r; film 2055161 item 48) This newsletter contains helpful articles on research methodology; information about local records, archives and services; and book reviews. (NOTE: The SIPEO organization was dissolved in the mid 1990's.)
Societies and organizations in Greece publish genealogical periodicals in Greek. Much of their content is devoted to compiled genealogies of native families. They also are an excellent place to publish queries or advertisements regarding an ancestor from Greece. An example of one periodical is:
Deltion Eraldikis kai Genealogikis Etairias Ellados - Bulletin of the Heraldic and Genealogical Society of Greece. Athinai, Greece: Ekdosis Eraldikis kai Genealogikis Etairias Ellados, 1979–. (FHL book 949.5 D25d)
In addition, publications are available from regional societies, and major archives with genealogical collections will have copies of many periodicals, particularly those representing the area they serve. The town halls of each town usually can provide information about those societies and their locations. See also the “Societies” section.
