Genealogy of the Family Name Christoforos from the Island of Kythera



An account of virtually all individuals from the region of Potamos in Kythera, bearing the name Christoforos in the period 1650-1750.

This name was replaced in the beginning of 19th Century by alternative names such as Galacatos, Chlentzos, Georgopoulos, Flascas, Coutroulidis and Cavieris and subsequently disappeared from the Island. This study has found that all Chlentzos individuals are descending from Dimitri2 Christoforos and his five sons Andreas, Michalis, Vasilis, Theodore and Nicolaos.
