To be held on the Island of Ikaria
7th to 11th September 2020

Notification about the Convention

Hi Everyone,
I hope you are all staying safe in these very difficult times.

I am sure that you will all understand that it is time to review our plans for the Convention. We are safe here in Ikaria for the moment but Greece is on lockdown and is only now, in early May, moving carefully towards easing those restrictions.

So the Convention will not be held in May. We are certainly not thinking of cancelling but are going to POSTPONE the Convention. We have been lucky in that our speakers can come later in the year. So for now our NEW dates are as follows:

September 7th to September 11th 2020

We will of course review these dates later in the year but hopefully people will be able to travel by then. There will be a social gathering on Sunday 6th September and an evening of celebration on Saturday 12th September.

Check our Facebook Page and Website for more info over the next few months.

The important thing is for everyone to stay safe and we will all meet in Ikaria and have a fantastic Convention when the time is right.

Take care

Topsy Douris & Irini Karimali

For anybody interested in Ikarian Genealogy, abroad or living on the island, this is a golden opportunity to meet with other genealogists, amateur and professional, with a specific interest in and knowledge of Icarian genealogical sources.

The Convention is being organized by Topsy Douris and Irini Karimali. (You can read how this came about here.) There will be no fee for the Convention Seminars as none of the speakers are charging and everything else associated with the Convention is being run by volunteers.

For those wishing to join us at the Convention please fill in the Registration Form as soon as possible. Hopefully we intend to have the full program available by September 2019. If you have any suggestions or general questions please use the link below to contact us.

  • Ikariaki Radio
