1807 CENSUS OF ITHACA, KALAMOS AND KASTOS
by Ioanna Athanasopoulou
 Athanasopoulou backfront cover

The 1807 census of the islands Ithaca, Kalamos, and Kastos, was collected immediately after the fall of the Septinsular Republic. A study of the census not only describes demographic trends in the island populations, but reveals the ways society was composed and stratified at the time when French rule returned to the Ionian islands. Of particular significance is the record of foreign-born residents, mainly composed of the domestic servant class, but also of the families of fighters who later took up arms in the Greek revolution of 1821.

Dr Ioanna Athanasopoulou’s publication of the 1807 census features an extended introduction which considers the demographic insights in the data and describes the context of the census’s collection. An index of names and place-names will be of particular interest for population studies, but also of great value to genealogists and local historians. 

Language:  Introductory analysis in Greek: census in Italian.
