Hi David and a warm welcome to Expat Focus.

Good Luck with your move to Crete and hope the builder completed your new home on time. Please keep in touch and share any "secrets" on overcoming the challenges of Greek bureaucracy.

Best regards
Carole

Hi aussiechick...like your username Cool

Welcome to Expat Focus and hope we can help with some of your questions.

Please have a look at the "Greece - An Expatriate Guide"
www.expatfocus.com/exp...ate-greece it may help to answer some of your initial questions.

I would also make a new post on the "Normal" Greece forum, as your questions may not picked up in this intro topic

With regards to schooling, what ages are your children? Are you looking to send them to Local or International Schools?

Kind Regards
Carole

Hi, I'm so happy to find all of you.

I'm especially hoping to connect with people who are knowledgable about getting Greek citizenship.

I'm in the process. My father and my mother's parents were born in Greece. I've collected almost of the documentation I need and lots that isn't required, but supports the fact that my father was born in greece (Ellis Island copy of the ship manifest from 1920, his naturalization doc from the 1930's). But because he was never sure of his precise birth date, I have'n't been able to obtain his birth certificate. Of course, his place of birth is noted on my birth certificate.

I look forward to reading as many of your posts as I can and contributing where I can.

With warmest regards to all,

18Hellene19 in New York

Thanks for responding, Carole.

I'm in New York. My parents passed away years ago. I grew up bi-lingual (dimotiki) and have always felt as Greek as I have American.
