Getting started with Greece research

FamilySearch Wiki is a community website dedicated to helping people throughout the world learn how to find their ancestors. Through the Greece page you can learn how to find, use, and analyze Greek records of genealogical value. The content is variously targeted to beginners, intermediate, and expert researchers. The Greece Page is a work in progress, your contributions and feedback are essential!

Featured Content

When Greece became an independent state, communities began keeping registers of males (Mitroon Arrenon), which list all the males born in a particular community. They were kept for voting and military purposes. Male registers were created for all communities in Greece. As new areas became part of Greece, their communities also began keeping male registers. In some areas male registers were reconstructed from other records back to 1825.
