I am searching for the origin of my great grandfather's family.  His immigration documents (1891) show his name as George Nicholas Marinacos and his date of birth as 23 Apr 1876.  He settled in Chicago, IL and then, sometime after 1905, the name changed to Marinos.  I am interested in alternate spellings of the Marinacos surname.  I have some vague information indicating he may have been from Sparta or Laconia.  

My great grandfather returned to Greece in 1930, following the loss of his restaurant and other assets during the Depression.  The family lost track of him; however, LDS Genealogy reports that he died in Greece on 4 Jul 1944.  There are no sources listed. I am trying to locate information that may help me locate records of his birth or death.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You should try searching for "Marinakos". Try Facebook.
Last names ending in -akos are usually from the Laconia area, most likely Mani.

Good luck!

Thanks for the response.  I have tried facebook, but there was only one result and that one didn't help me.  

I'm curious why you suggested the family is most likely from Mani.  Is it because that is where most Marinakos families are from?
