Search Census Records in Greece:

1.RECORDS. The records you expect to find in Greece are:
a.Church Records. These are Diocese Registers instead of Parish Registers that are found in other
countries. This means that the churches in each town will not have old records. You can find them in
the Mitropolis [diocese] which is located in a large city. These records include baptisms, marriages,
b.Civil Registration.
·Mitroon Arrenon [Male Register] is the one kept in hand at the Dimarheion [town hall]. They can
also be found in Nomarheion [office of nomos (county)], and Eparheion [office of eparhia (district).
Usually start from 1830.
·Dimotologion [Town Register] is a list of residents by families; like a census. Available in town halls
are of 1887, of 1914, and of more recent years.
·Ektheseis [Reports] which sometimes include four generations.
·Oikogeneiaki Katastasis [Family Status] is like a Family Group Record.
·Apografai [Census] the ones conducted by the Greek government start from 1828, 1836-1845 yearly,
then every 3 or 5, and finally every 10 years. There was one done retrospective for 1821. In previous
years censuses were performed by other countries.
2.ARCHIVES (found in each large town or city)
·Dimotika Arheia [Municipal Archives] found in Town Halls.
·Lixiarheion [Vital Records] after 1925. This name "Lixiarheion" creates some confusion because
some old books bear the name "Lixiarheion."
·Genika Arheia tou Kratous - GAK [General Archives of Greece] archives where old documents are
selected, cataloged and preserved. They are usually located in the capital of Eparhias [districts].
·Mirtopolis [Diocese] explained on the top of this page, under Church Records.
·Stratiotika Arheia (Military Archives) can be found locally in
"Stratologiko Grafeio" [Conscription Office] located in large towns.
·Symvolaiografika Arheia [Notarial Archives] include contracts of land transfers, dowry contracts,
wills etc.
·Private Archives. Some retired archivists moved by their appreciation for history have kept
information about families extracted from material available in the archive where they served.
3.BOOKS. There is hardly a town that does not have it's history written in a book.
4.NEWSPAPERS OF TOWNS. Usually publications of Societies consisted of current or formal
residents of a town.
5.GOVERNMENT GAZETTE. Newspaper listing new laws, drafting and voting lists etc.
6.RELATIVES. Remember to show genuine love and appreciation.
7.PHOTOGRAPHS. In the back of old photographs you may find inscriptions that often hold valuable
8. ICONS. Often the birth dates of members of the family are written in the back of family icons
[pictures of Saints].

I will wait your reply
