I was not but now I am, not what I was, but who I have become ...

Just scroll down and click on the links to take a journey several generations back where you will find original pictures and information.

The current Zamaros family of 5 members, Panayotis, Sairoong, Donna, Vikki and Kellby, is made up of two lineages.

The Zamaros lineage, whose origin is Greek - but not the name as there are very few Zamaros' in Greece - maybe from Nothern Italy - yet there is a river Zamaros in the middle of Creta! The family must have emigrated to the island of Kythnos late 19th century - there are still some Zamaros' on the island, and from there to Athens.

The Chevangkool lineage, whose origin is Thai and which can be traced to the region of Katchanburi (river Kway) - yet there have been strong Chinese influences.

Going a generation back, here is Sairoong's father Somchai of the Chevangkool lineage, and her mother Rungthong from ChiangMai.

Going a generation back, here is Panayotis' father Anastasios Zamaros of the Zamaros lineage and Mihas lineage.

From Panayotis' mother Sandra Seiler there is opening onto the Seiler lineage, Briggs lineage, Whitney lineage, Duryee lineage, and through the daughters of the revolution lineage, onto the protagonists of the US revolution.
