The Greek Texans

New genealogy book at the Glenview Public Library:

The Greek Texans --2nd edition by James Patrick Maguire and others.

The 1860 census showed only 2 Greeks in Texas. A century later, there were over 10,000. The major immigration took place in the 3 decades following 1890.

This book presents the early history of Greek sailors, fishermen, and adventurers in Texas. It contains articles about significant individuals, societuies, families, events, and organizations., along with many wonderful photographs and documents.
