WELCOME καλως ΗΡΘΑΤΕ !
WELCOME! My name is Lourett Russell Grant and I would like to welcome you to my site.
The PHILIPPIDES One -Name Study commenced in Sept 2017. It is progressing in the data collection stage, currently focusing on the collection of birth, marriage, and census records worldwide to establish a basic foundation of linkages between the various Philippides family branches before undertaking more detailed research on individuals.
I would encourage all Philippides descendants to join me in the quest to identify all family members in the history of the world .
The name Philippides has been registered with the Guild of One-Name studies along with its variants: I am also a proud member and supporter of ISOGG, the International Society of Genetic Genealogy.
The Guild of One-Name Studies is the worldwide centre of excellence in one-name studies located in London, England. One-name studies registered with the Guild are global in scope. A one-name study may concentrate on aspects such as geographical distribution of the name and the changes in that distribution over the centuries, or it may attempt to reconstruct the genealogy of the lines bearing the surname both in ancient and modern times.
Philippides is an ancient Greek name meaning "Son of Philip"; Philip means "lover of horses". The name Philippides is also seen as a derivative from the ancient Greek name "Philippos/Philippus" . The Greek origin of the name Φίλιππος (Philippos, lit. "horse-loving" or "fond of horses" is from a compound of φίλος (phílos, "dear", "loved", "loving") and ἵππος (hippos, "horse")
