About Our Family Research

I am a new fan of Genealogy. I am just beginning to research my Ancestry. This new found interest was sparked by an upcoming Family Reunion. The reunion is for the Duran family, more specifically, descendants of Candelario & Concepcion Duran, which are my mother's paternal grandparents. I am looking forward to the reunion, which is scheduled for November of 2002. I have many relatives whom I have never even met. I am counting down the days to the reunion, as I am confident that I will receive many new leads.

My maiden name is Shawn Lee Martinez. I was born in Sacramento, California. I now live in Austin, Texas with my husband, Sotirios (AKA "Sam") Panagiotis Giakoumis. He grew up in Logannikos, Greece. His family moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts when he was sixteen years old. He joined the Air Force upon graduation from high school. We met while both working at March Air Force Base in Riverside, California. His next assignment brought us to Texas. Upon his retirement, we loved the State of Texas so much that we decided to make Austin our permanent home.

Good luck to all others researching their family histories.

  • Sotirios & Shawn - Reno, Nevada (46 KB)
    This picture was taken just outside Reno, Nevada. We were smiling because we were optimistic of our chances of hitting the casino's jackpot. Needless to say, we were not this happy upon leaving the casino, however, we had a good time nonetheless.

    This picture was taken in December of 2001. Sam is straddling a Texas Longhorn while I chose to just stand "safely" nearby. :-)
