Thank you for your interest in Greek Ancestry’s Village History Projects Initiative! The purpose of this project is to encourage researchers to share family and/or village histories with people who also have ties to that name or location. Our goal is to help people connect and exchange information by fostering collaboration. Sharing a project is defined as posting an extensive family tree on any genealogy forum (e.g., Tribal Pages, Ancestry, MyHeritage, Geni, WikiTree), creating a website dedicated to a village in Greece or containing family history information, or writing a family or village history e-book which is free to access and posted online. A village history project focuses beyond a specific surname to include all identifiable people residing in a specific village for an extended period of time. It includes all projects — whether they are in the planning stage, have commenced, or are completed. Although projects of this scope are continually being researched, they can still be shared so others can view and give feedback or assistance. All projects–whether beginning, ongoing or completed–will be listed on the Village History tab on the Greek Ancestry website to make them visible and accessible to the public.
Greek Ancestry will support this initiative by listing the project and its sponsor under the “Village History Projects Initiative” page of the Greek Ancestry website, by publicizing individual projects and by offering a reduced price for records from a specific village. In addition, financial support may be available through the Greek Ancestry Village History Project Fund, supported through revenue from the Greek Genealogy Guide. To join this innovative and exciting program and to have your project listed on Greek Ancestry, please submit your answers in this form (click here).
