Welcome to the Castellorizo Genealogy Pages. This site represents many years of research by the webmaster, Allan, and by the many contributors to this site. I hope that you can find something on this site that will prove useful to your knowledge about your own family history.

Note that from April 2011 access to this website is only available by either:

Registering - To have access to information on ALL individuals and ALL photos you are required to register. On the registration page please do indicate the reason for the access (ie. "My grandmother was an Xanthis"). Without some validation for your need to register, access to information on living persons will not be available. If you wish to have full access to the database, you will need to REGISTER HERE. Approval is then granted, when appropriate, within 24 hours.

If however you just wish to casually visit prior to registering you can gain access to ALL deceased individuals information and their photos. Under the registration tag at LOGIN just type USERNAME: guest & PASSWORD: guest (lower case).

This site has been constructed utilising information compiled and obtained over many years by both the Webmaster and numerous contributors. Much of the information has been obtained from newspaper, cemetery and official records which are often open for interpretation with resultant incorrect data being listed. Additional information and corrections are always appreciated and is acknowledged by way of listing the "Source" person . Contact the webmaster if you would like your Cazzie family entered onto this website.

Numerous photographs and media items can be viewed on this website and we are always looking for additional Castellorizian photographs.

I am constantly uncovering new information and updating the pages, so check back periodically (see the What's New page for the latest updates).
