We have found our family monk
Another piece of the puzzle fell into place last night and I made contact with David Ross, our family monk. He is, it seems, not a Greek Orthodox monk but a Russian Orthodox monk; Father Joachim (Ross) head abbot of a monastery based just outside of Sydney. I have yet to hear the full story but it seems he had little or no knowledge of his Greek ancestors... and I have little or no knowledge of his side of the family. Fascinating.
