Coroneos/Comino Wedding 1924

Coroneos/Comino Wedding 1924
Copyright (0000) Olympia Tzortzopoulos

Wedding of Chris Coroneos (Christiforos Dimitriou Koroneos) and Melba Comino (Melpomeni Kosma Komino). 3rd July, 1924, Goulburn, NSW.

Both Chris and Melba were born in Karavas.

Chris's parents were Anna Kritharis, and Demetrios Melasofaos Koroneos.

Melba's parents were Anna (Kirranni) Tzortzopoulos Douris from Douranika, and Charles Kosma Komino.

I found this photograph in the collection of my paternal grandmother Olympia Pappayogiggi Tzortzopoulos in the patriko spitti, Karavas. My grandmother had married another Tzortzopoulos - Yeoryi - Hlihlis - also from Karavas. [Their life stories have been told in some detail on kythera-family, in various places, and can be accessed by utilising the internal search engine].

The fact this photograph occupied a significant pride of place in my grandmothers collection indicates to me that the Douris Tzortzopouli, and the Pappayogiggi Tzortzopouli were related in some way. Were the Hlihlis also related to the Douris's?

I am very interested to find out the basis of that connection.

Can anyone enlighten me?
