A mystery is brewing on the Halvangis/Chardoulias branch of my family tree. Was my great grandmother married once BEFORE she married my great grandfather or is this a records keeping mistake? Here is what I know.
This is Paraskevi Tsardoulias (Παρασκευή Τσαρδούλιας). She is my 1st cousin 2x removed. She was a member of the Εθνική Οργάνωσις Νεολαίας, a National Youth Organization of Greece. This is what I know of her story.
Learning about your family story through travel and immigration records can be an exhilarating experience. Here is a brief, though incomplete, case study in how I learned more about my great-grandmother, Maria Tsardoulia (1894-1951) and her journey to the United States from Greece in 1916.
