Both were born in Karavas, Kythera.

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

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

The best man Kapitan Mina (Tzortzo)Poulos is standing to the right of the couple.

Standing from Left to Right:

Peter (Tzortzo)Poulos, George Cominos, the bridal couple, Mick Poulos, Nicholas Cominos, Theadore Cominos, Peter Cominos (seated). [Peter was later to return to Kythera, and died as the result of an accident there.]

Front Row: Georgina Comino (nee, Krithari), married to George Comino. They owned the Bon Ton Cafe in Goulburn, NSW, for many years.

To her right are the three children of Georgina and George: Charles, Angelo and Anna Comino. [Future children, not in photo, were Matina Paltos and Mary Zaunders.]

The woman seated to the right of the bride is unknown to me. Does anyone recognise her?

211:I found a studio portrait of the married couple in the the collection of my paternal grandmother Olympia Pappayogiggi Tzortzopoulos in the patriko spitti, Karavas. [See photographic entry - 2 submissions sunsequent to this one.] 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?
