Gakias, only 2 ever in the USA!!!!
- The two Gakias' were my Grandparents, they only
raised one child, which was my Mother. Lets just say
"Mom's gone", so she is no real source of information.
If I could just figure out where to start I am sure
I would not stop until I found some family. My
Grandfather came to this county in this country from Greece
in about 1948 +or- 5yrs. He settled down in
Birmingham, Alabama. The only other thing about him was he
owned and operated "Gary Hotel & Restraunt"and he had a
brother(90%chance). So if anyone that takes the time to read big
message and would like to give me some suggestions on
where to start, you can feel confident that the
information will be used.
Have you any info on Christophers family ,Brothers ,Sisters ,Parents Etc.
I have only just found you email, My Son has done a lot of research and has found out our Reynolds came from Kent
