New Book Unfolds a Hellenic-Romanian Family Legacy

Share Article

Ted Theodore’s Memoir primarily involves the lineages of three southern European families, their intertwining, and their migration to the United States

When one is asked about his or her family history, the most he or she can provide, at minimum, is the most basic ancestors – father, mother, grandparents, aunts, and uncles. Not surprisingly, a few can even furnish family details extending three hundred years or more into the past. Because of their intense curiosity regarding various lineages, Author Ted Theodore, in collaboration with Georgia Theodore Kyriazis, pens Farewell...Don't Forget Me: A Hellenic-Romanian Legacy.

“From a somewhat different perspective, someone had to tell the story of the generations that came before us––they contributed so much, yet, when all is said and done, they were the most ordinary of an entire generation of extraordinary individuals. Their struggles and successes must be told,” the authors share.

This memoir chronicles three southern European clans, their migration to the United States, and intertwining, as well as hard working, warm, loving, and close-knit personal values they bestowed on their kin. Their story flows across Europe and North America from the mid 19th to the late 20th centuries. Family bonds survived and strengthened despite parental and sibling deaths, boarding schools, upheavals in occupied Romania during WW I, personal tragedies, separations imposed by WW II and the Communist bloc, civil war, and financial struggles.
