Saving Stories of the Manchester, NH Greek-American Community

The Manchester, New Hampshire Greek-American community has been an important one in the United States and now the St. George Greek Orthodox Cathedral is behind an initiative to save its legacy and history.

The St. George Memory Project is an initiative to preserve, archive, digitize and collect treasured relics and stories, documents and articles that will chronicle the lives of Greek community members and chart the community’s impact, reported ManchesterInkLink.

It’s also aimed at teaching the next generation about the church’s role and the community in the Queen City as well as around the Granite State.

“It’s our history,” said archivist and historian Meletios Pouliopoulos said. “There’s just a lot of great history. Now’s the time to really capture all that,” he added.

He lives in Stratham but is a former Manchester native and attended services at St. George in his youth and is President of Greek Cultural Resources, which preserves and promotes Greek music, traditions, publications, images and interviews.

George Skaperdas, President of the church’s board, said: “The history that we share is all-inclusive. Every family in our community share comparable stories of their family’s journey to America.”
