Andreas and Sophia Rokakis with children and others, 1924.
Andreas and Sophia Rokakis with children
and others, 1924.
When Andreas and Sophia Rokakis first settled in Therisso in the late 19th century, the roots of a great family tree began to spread, and with it a rich family history began. One which is still unfolding to this day, through the lives of their grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and the many descendants yet to come.

This family reunion was meant to strengthen our bonds as descendants of that simple, poor couple who were drawn to the raw beauty of Therisso, hoping for a better life for themselves and their children.

We each have our own story to tell about the reunion and what it meant to us. Let's stay in touch, share our stories, and strengthen our bonds as fellow Rokaki, as Therissiani, as Cretans!
