Colchamiro Family Website

Our family history is centered around immigration from Greece and settling in the Brighton Beach section of Brooklyn, NY. Each of the family members had apartments or a bungalow within the neighborhood.  This enabled us to be in close proximity of one another which contributed to the family dynamic of being engaged with each member and as a whole group of family.


In 1987 I wrote a newsletter and mailed it to my immediate family. It seems that some of the family sent copies to relatives I did not know (directly) and the response was both rewarding and over whelming. Unfortunately time and events prevented me from continuing the printed newsletter. Now to the 1990s (1998 to be exact and now updated in 2017) I continue the news about the Colchamiro Family on the World Wide Web.


One question I received from related relatives was, Who are you? I think I best tell you now. My name is Martin Colchamiro and the family I write about is the Colchamiro Family of Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, New York. That is where it all began for me and I hope to expand this to include where it really started.


The family lived in the Brighton Beach neighborhood and this was our family community. Some lived on Brighton 3rd Street (me), some on Brighton 4th and 2nd Streets and even a near by community of Manhattan Beach. All of the cousins enjoyed the close proximity of one another and we were always just a block or two or several to visit Aunt Rae and Uncle Jack  or Aunt Terry and Uncle Sid. On the page link to Family you can access a more detailed look at eacj family member.  It starts with the Aunts and Uncle and then moves down to the cousins.
