      Note from Jenny Stewart, Greek genealogy Facebook friend:
      October 8, 2013
      Hi Carol, 
      I did recently talk to a Minakakis still living in Sparta, and he told me all Minakakis are related and that they are from the village Kalyvia Sochas in Sparta. He also told me before the Minakakis came to Kalyvia Sochas they were in Karpathos, the island by Crete. Very interesting origins. 
      My great grandfather George Andrew, came over in the early 1900's. He said he was from Sparta. His brothers, sisters, and cousins, who came to visit America or to live, all listed Socha or Sparta as there home.
      I'm working on a family tree for the Minakakis side, and have my family tree on ancestry.com: (Korn Family Tree - http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/49029482/family?cfpid=12956551841&selnode=1)
      I did see the 1872 election list for Soha! Very exciting. There are also a lot of records on ellis island for Minakakis. Some are under Minacakis, Minahaky, Minakokis. Did Nicholas come to America or another country? What year was he born?
