This web site was developed to help
identify Greek immigrants who lived in Middletown, Ohio. A large
number of them immigrated between 1891 and 1910. The
names of Greek immigrants when translated into English were spelled in
various ways on official documents. Also the immigrant changed his or
her English name from time to time. This file groups the names
as spelled in recent years and sometimes includes the
spellings as found on the original documents,which were researched as indicated
in "Research Sources" (index Tab 11.) For
example, Demetrion is seen as Demetriou, etc. The same
is true for the spellings of villages cities i.e. Modern
Brusa, Turkey is spelled Brussa on many documents,
Bursa on others. More potential confusion can be found in geographical
names: the city of Brusa is contained in the much larger Province of Brusa;
while the City of Mudanya is contained in the Region of Mudanya which is also contained within the
Province of Brusa.
