I am reasearching my grandfather and grandmother Peter Kametches(Panayiotis Kamitsis)and Mary Masouras. I believe Panayoitis's father's name was George as he named his first son George.George was never allowed in the US even though he attempted several times and was sentback each time.
They came to the US through New York in early 1900's.Their first child born in Brooklyn, NY,US was born 10/1905 or 1906.Birth records were burned, we are going on baptismal records and dates. They later moved to Raleigh, NC.We know they were in Raleigh between 1913 and 1924.
I have had very little luck discovering when the arrived in New York.I'm not finding much at Ellis Island after several years.
Yiayia's parents were Micheal Masouras and Thula Karoker. Her sister Angelina Kate and brothers William, James and Agustus Constanine.
I look forward to any and all assistance or ideas.
