Hi John, thank you for your response, late reply sorry but I didn't get any notification, so I hope this message finds you and your family in good health given the time that has since passed.
Yes it is the same village (Sveta Petka), that my mothers side of the family is from, can you give me any information regarding my grandfather Andreas, if so it would be very much appreciated.
I am from Melbourne and yes my mother surname has variations from Siniakov to Mangos, apparently the story goes, Andreas wore blue denim jeans, yes he was a trend setter, way ahead of his time lol, so he gained the nickname siniache 9meaning blue) which later became Siniakis, probably Greekified due to the occupation. My mother was the eldest Gena 9since passed), followed by George, Lektra and John.
You can email me if that you prefer? firstname.lastname@example.org
