About Kefalonian Roots


Please, allow me to introduce myself.  My name is Elaine C. Boldrick Sinodinoy-Vallianoy. I grew up in Pitman, New Jersey, USA.

In 1975 I developed an interest in genealogy and over the next 25 years I  traced my father’s family to Ireland, Scotland, England and the “French” Palatinate; and my mother’s family to the “Swiss, French and German” Palatinate.

In the spring of 1978, in Lixouri, Kefalonia, Greece, I  married  Dionysios Sinodinos-Vallianos of  Soullaroi, Palliki, Kefalonia; and have resided in Lixouri for the past 30 years.

During this time I researched my husband’s paternal family to Sinada, Turkey, Asia Minor and his maternal family through the villages of Palliki, Kefalonia. Since 1998, I have assisted family historians in Greece, Canada, the United States, Ireland, England and Russia. Although English is my mother tongue, I research and work in the Greek language.

By chance, in the fall of 2003, the idea to present a site to assist descendents of Kefalonians developed in my mind. Slowly, with the technical knowledge and assistance of Mr. John Majeroni,  the method of placing the site on the Net developed, and Kefalonian Roots evolved from a dream, into a reality.       

I wish you success in your research, and sincerely hope that this site will be of great assistance. Please, feel free to communicate with me at any time.
