The presentation of the concluding volume of the series “The Greeks of Odessa” will take place at the Odessa Branch on March 27 at 16:00 hrs. The series “The Greeks of Odessa” is the outcome of HFC’s co-operation with the State Historical Archives of Odessa, which started in 2000 and considers the index of the records of the Agia Triada Greek church in Odessa for the period 1799-1920.
Since then, with the Foundation’s support, six volumes have been published. The concludingvolume covers the period 1799-1831, 1836. It includes 15 parish registers, which were considered to be lost until 2009.
The project developers dedicate this volume to the 200th Anniversary since the foundation of Philiki Etaireia, the 20th Anniversary since the foundation of the Branch of the Hellenic Foundation for Culture and the 220th Anniversary since the foundation of Odessa city.
The HFC Branch congratulates all who worked on this project, especially Bilousova Liliya, the author of the idea, and is grateful to scientists, researches, publishers, staff of the Consulate General of Greece in Odessa and Mr. Pandelis Boubouras, the sponsor of the book publishing.
