Boondry doesn't sound like a Greek name  
You'll need to find or figure out the original name.

You need to upload it on some free server and then paste the link here.

Boudouris seems probable. It's a fairly common Greek last name.

Yup, his name was Alekos Boundris (Αλέκος Μπουντρης)

According to the tombstone he was born in Galaχidi (Γαλαξίδι)

For birth certificate I guess you'd have to go to the municipality of Galaxidi. Seeing though that your grandfather was born in 1866 I wouldn't be very hopeful that his records will be easy to find.

As far as connecting with relatives, I'd first try Facebook. Search for some Boundris' there and ask them if their family is originaly from Galaxidi or the surrounding area.

Good luck!
