New Blog Section: the Greek-Orthodox Nation of Livorno Tuesday, Apr 3 2012 

A whole new page with several sub-sections has just been added to the blog’s main menu:

The Greek-Orthodox Nation of Livorno

Fellow historian Mathieu Grenet provided me with several documents he compiled during his research trips in Livorno and Greece. The lists added to the page are a first nucleus of sources regarding the Greek Nation of Livorno:

Most of the primary and secondary sources used to establish these lists were originally in Greek and thus quite unaccessible to the majority of researchers. For the first time, they are available on this blog, transcribed in the latin alphabet and translated in English.

2011 in review Monday, Jan 2 2012 

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

A little note to my readers… Thursday, Aug 11 2011 

I wish to thank all the 35 subscribers of this blog and the 8 donors: you helped me believe in this project even in the hard moments! I wish as well to thank all the visitors, those who regularly visit without registering or saying a word, those who just jump on these pages by hazard but then find something interesting, those who comment, those who write me privately to collaborate or ask questions or more information, those who cited this website in their own website and also those who just come to get what they need and leave without trace… in one word thanks to the almost 20,000 visitors that make my beliefs stronger since September 2009, almost 2 years ago! THANK YOU !

Matteo
