Maria Chlentzos Alfieris (right) was born in Christoforianika in 1882. Her parents were Haralambos Chlentzos and Efrocene Venardos Chlentzos. Her grandparents were Martha Koroneos and Manolli Venardos. At the age of 14 she went to Alexandria, Egypt to live with an aunt. This aunt is unknown to us, but we have been told that it might be the person on the left in this photograph. If anyone knows who this person is, please email me.
In Alexanadria, Maria married John Alfieris, from Potamos. He immigrated to the USA in 1906, and she followed approximately one year later. There are 101 living descendants of John and Maria living in the USA today, mostly in California.

On this site there are photo videos and an audio interview, along with many old photographs of the Chlentzos, and Alfieris families. My cousin Terry Chlentzos Kermaris and I spent one afternoon at the home of Tikey and Tedde Zes, in San Jose, CA, where we video-taped Tedde's mother, Stamatoula Mavromatis Chlentzos, as she told us about the people in many of her old photographs from Kythera. Stamatoula just turned 99!
The videos are large files and may take some to load the first time. You will need Quicktime in order to view the movie files.
