ARCADIA WEB FORUM: Αρκαδικοί Τόποι - Localities of Arcadia: Palaiopirgos
Chris Pappageorgas on Friday, March 3, 2006 - 08:38 pm:

I don't know if this is the place to ask this question, but I am trying to find out information about the village of Paliorpigos near Levidi.
My father was born there and I would like to know more about the people there and the village. My fathers name was theodothoros Pappayioryas, and in English it is Pappageorgas. He was born in
1882 or a couple of years earlier or later, I am not sure of exact date. If you can reply and tell me if there is a better place to get this information, it would be appreciated. Thank you in advance for any help, and I do speak Greek and write it and read it but I don't know or understand a lot of the large words.

Dear Chris Pappageorgas

Althought you are in the wrong Forum's section, I let you know that our Arcadia site, (University of Patras) has a very rich page (in greek) about Palaiopirgos (with places, history, photos, names, surnames, important people etc).

You could even locate you village in our interactive map:

Both our Portal Arcadia:

and our site Arcadia:

have all information about the surrounding area, and of course Arcadia.

We are not aware or specialists about arcadian surnames. For related questions you can go to the related forum section (Arcadian Localities):
(note that you could even create a directory of Palaiopirgos there!)

or to our web-based arcadian Groups:

yes paliorpigos is a great little village. My father was born there and left in 1909 or 1910. I have visited and met several relatives that still live there. I would like to exchange messages with anyone that is familiar with the village. My dads name was theodore pappageorgas and his dads name or nick name was kalako. They lived on the last house of the village to the left of the village down by the meadow. My name is Chris Pappageorgas and I live in Monterey, California My email address is pappasftbl@aol
