In the Wedding Photo in 1929, there are many people with the surname Passaris. Are any of them related to Irini Passaris? I know this is a common name, so I don't expect them to be related, but you never know.
Hi Nicholas, I am referring to Evangelos Gravas wife Irini Passaris. She was born about 1865 and I think her father might have been Yiorgios Passaris, but I am not sure. Sorry, I should have been more specific.
hi levi!! new member mish58 or Michelle. Interesting stuff this cazzie clan . the name Passaris caught my attention as I am associated with the Passaris family in perth W.A.You may or may not be aware that the Passaris family has a well established history in W.A with 4 siblings of Steve (Stavros and Queenie Passaris) still going strong.My family name is Lakias from Cazzie decent as well but I still dont know enough yet,may be you could enlighten me on your link to the Passaris clan.
You asked a question re Stavros Passaris arriving Fremantle 1914 on the Marcou thread and I am replying here.
The indexes list a Mr L Passaris arriving on the ship "Gorgon" on 20 Dec 1914. I am sure it is him. Nationality Greek and Passport No. 76 is recorded in comments. Someone would have misread an initial "S" as an "L" quite easily on the shipping documents. There is no one with the surname Passaris and a first name starting with "L" that I know of arriving those early years.
Stavros caught the ship from Singapore which was quite common in those days. They would travel from Port Said to say Singapore on a ship with that destination then get another ship heading to Australia.
I can not find any details of him arriving on his first occasion (c1896) to go to the WA Goldfields but most arrived through Darwin in those earlier days, then caught a local ship down to Perth, Albany or Esperance.
