Credit for collecting this archival information, and for doing an incredible amount of research through his dedication to the KGHP, goes out to George Katinas, our Project Lead. The 20 original interviews and their complimentary archives were collected by George, along with contributions from Paula Antonakos-Boswell. Beyond the original 20 interviews, George also contributed a depth of research into the early Greeks in Kingston, mapping out a chronology of Greek settlement in Kingston that provided an essential framework for our subsequent research.
We also want to thank Paula Antonakos-Boswell for her ongoing organizational efforts and grant requests on behalf of the community, without which none of this would be possible. Beyond the first phase of the KGHP, all subsequent archival information and interviews after the original 20 were collected and sorted by our Researcher, Angeline Antonakos Boswell.
Thanks goes out to Athina Peidou for her work translating and to Yiannis Pantis for his technical support.
DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO CONTRIBUTE?
The Kingston Greek History Project’s acquiring of archival data is on pause following the completion of our 2018-2019 project.
If you have something to contribute to our archival collection, we encourage you to post here. This Facebook platform is meant to be a space where anyone can share any photos, documents, information, videos, or anything else pertinent to Greek History in Kingston! This is a collaborative space where we can engage with one another in keeping the history of the Greeks in Kingston alive.
If you are from the Kingston Greek Community and would like to volunteer your time to collect interviews and scan documents from your family members or other members in the community and do not have the resources to do so, please contact us to request access to our equipment. Please volunteer to speak on behalf of your parents, aunts and uncles or grandparents, if they are unable to do so. We would love to help you digitize old pictures and items of importance to them. We are interested in also hearing from Greeks who arrived later and from different areas of Greece and the world as well as the most recent Greek and non-Greek members to arrive to make this community their home. How wonderful this would be to have your stories archived so that hundreds of years from now, others can know about our history here in Kingston?
