La versión croata.
Relato de otro blog...
My first ancestor whose name I know was Markos Nomikos. He was born in the second half of the 18th century in Santorini. His son Iannis Nomikos was born at the end of the 18th or at the beginning of the 19th century also in Santorini.
Iannis Nomikos was a ship owner and captain and was engaged in the merchant activities with Russia through the harbour of Taganrog at the Black See, a town providing access to the South Russia. First Greek settlements appeared there in the 7th-6th centuries BC.
Many Greeks moved to Taganrog in the 18th and 19th centuries. At some point Iannis Nomikos settled himself in Taganrog and married a daughter of Kapetanakis, Greek, who had lived in Italy before coming to Russia (the family name Kapetanakis indicates origin from Crete, and probably the family had moved to Italy from there, as many families did after the occupation of Crete by Turks). In Russia Kapetanakis was working as a teacher of Latin.
Iannis Nomikos and Kapetanaki had at least two sons, Mikhail and Leonid, and two daugters.
