The updated 2nd edition of Passage to Ithaca by George Paxinos is now available.
A Passage to Ithaca explores the formation of Ithacan society with a strong focus on origins of family surnames. It examines the historical and geographic factors that shaped a small island society, the formation of its villages and what it is to be an Ithacan. Both the annotated surname list and the associated nicknames aim to preserve a local culture and provide a creditable companion to any Ithacan family history.
Price: $40 inc GST plus postage & handling
