Neret Families

By Victor Bivell

Neret Families is a collection of photographs and information about people and families from the village of Neret in south west Macedonia, now in north west Greece. The focus is on Neretsi who have passed on. In this way we can remember them, honour them, and make available photographs and information about them to distant family and friends.

The families are listed alphabetically and include extended family members. The photographs under each family name start with the oldest born. To navigate, click on the family name, and then use the browser's back button to return to the Index.

If you have photographs you would like to contribute, please email the author at info @ pollitecon.com.
