Sephardic SIG #Sephardim TRA(C)HOS (Trahos) and GIATA surnames. Anyone have any information? #sephardic
I have discovered that my Great Great Mother on my Mother's side
was possibly Sephardic Jewish and converted to Greek Orthodox
Christianity in the mid to late 1800's. She was in northern Greece
in the area of Siatista/Xserolimni and near to Thessaloniki. Her
maiden name prior to marriage was TRAHOS or TRACHOS, and her married
surname was GIATA. Both these surnames seem to be of Sephardic Jewish
origin, >from what I have gleaned >from very basic investigation online.
Can anyone confirm this?
Do any of you out there have any further information which would help
add some meat to the bones of my hypothesis? Any information would be
greatly appreciated. I hope that I am not on a wild goose chase and
that someone out there may be able to assist me! Many thanks everybody.
