A Greek Roots Project?

+11 votes
118 views
Hey, everyone!

A few days ago, a few people in the Weekend Chat suggested I create a Greek Roots project in lieu of me creating this profile: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Soterakopolous-1

Apparently everyone wants me to get the ball rolling with starting this. I honestly have no idea what I'm doing. So, I was wondering if someone could check out the Free space page I made. Check things over. Make sure everything looks good.

If anyone wants to offer pointers or lead this project instead of me, please feel free. I'm much more comfortable over in Italian Roots. And besides. Romans did take Greek myths sooooooo......

I won't be naming Zeus, Jupiter any time soon. =) Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, everyone!

I'm always surprised when we don't have something on WikiTree - we are such a global site/community. Who knew we didn't have a Greek Project? The page looks great Chris. I hope you find someone who has interest in adopting this project and that it becomes a full project! You know where I am if you have questions

There will be a rigorous screening process involving:

1. Gyros.

2. John Stamos.

3. My Big Fat Greek Wedding 1 and 2

4. George Stephanopolous.

And yea I will call on you if I need help. Because I will.
I'll take a gyro depending on how well you pronounce it.

The surname you have written in English is Σωτηρακόπουλος in Greek.  A large population of persons with that surname can be found in this area:

I hope that this helps you.
