I have been very excited to learn how devoted my patrioti Jim Lucas ( also from Stockton, son of Harriett and Jerry Lucas) is to the history of Greek-Americans. His focus is San Francisco, and to that end is the founder of www.sanfranciscogreeks.com: "Over the years Jim has built web sites for churches, cathedrals, and ministries of the Greek Orthodox Church. He is active with many organizations. Jim's work with the community has one central theme: Unity." Bravo!
In addition, Jim is a mover-and-shaker with the Greek Historical Society of the San Francisco Bay Area, and they have a Facebook page. The group will again be participating in the San Francisco History Expo this weekend. It brings local and neighborhood history groups together under one roof -- an opportunity for people of all ages to learn about San Francisco history though presentations, photographs, artifacts, children's activities, and historical reenactments. The Expo is taking place this Saturday (11 am - 5 pm) and Sunday (11 am - 4 pm) , March 2nd and 3rd, at The Old Mint at 88 5th Street at Mission. Check it out if you are in San Francisco, admission is FREE.
The next "Monthly Meeting & Family History Interview"of the Greek Historical Society will take place on March 9th, 10 am - 1 pm, at Annunciation Cathedral at 245 Valencia Street. Anyone with an interest in Greek-American history is invited to attend. I will be there in spirit!
