Stratakos Family

I am seeking information regarding my paternal ancestors. My grandfather, Petros Stratakos, was born 20 June 1883 in a small town near Sparta called Goranous. He and my grandmother, Evriklia, had four children. The oldest was my father, George Peter Stratakos, who was born in Goranous on 5 May 1915. The family emigrated to the U.S. during the 1930's and 40's.

Any information concerning the history of the Stratakos family would be greatly appreciated. Please contact Ted Stratakos via E-Mail at or snail mail at 6452 Frost Avenue, Columbia SC 29203 USA.

Thank you.

I apologize for the exceedingly late response. As you can see, I have not visited this board in several years and only today noticed your message.

I don't know if you'll even see this, but I do believe my grandfather and your grandmother might have been siblings. I know that some of the family did in fact settle in Canada.

If you do see this reply, please contact me via e-mail so we can investigate this further.

Surnames: Stratakos, Stratis, Doukas
I am originally from Baltimore. My maternal grandmother, Stavroula Stratakos, came from Ouranos. She had a number of brothers and sisters in Baltimore. The name was shortened to Stratis -- Harry Stratis, Bessie Stratis. My father's parents came from Ouranos too, George Doukas. I don't know the grandmother's name as she died in Greece.

Not sure if you are still looking, but my dad was born in Goranous, Greece and came to America in the 1900s..not sure of exact date. He had a brother (Peter) and sisters (Bessie, Stavroula) lived in the US and sisters (Pota and Dimitra) lived in Greece. All have passed now. I believe Peter kept his name as Stratakos and my dad changed his to Stratos. If I can give you any other information feel free to ask.

Surnames: Stratakos Stratos Doukas
My grandmother may have been the Stavroula you mention. She lived in Baltimore and had Samuel, Andrew, Steven, Helen (my mother), and another girl sho died young. Stavroula also had a sister named Bessie and brother in Baltimore named Harry. My yiayia could not read or write, and spoke only broken English, but I don't ever recall having trouble communicating with her. She seemed to get along just fine.

They used the shortened name Stratos. My father's father, George Doukas, also came from Gouranos.

What part of the country were you referring to? Do you think this is your Bessie and Stavroula?

Thank you!
