I am researching my great-Grandmother who was born in Jerusalem in 1899, but moved to and lived in Alexandria where she met and married my great-Grandfather in 1916. Her name was Maria Gorzi and she has been noted as being of Greek origin on several documents obtained from Alexandria. My Great-Grandfather was Giovanni Pisani who was born in Alexandria in 1896.
I know that she worked at the convent in Alex as this is where he met her, and that it's likely her Father died when she was young as I know that her mother remarried at some point. She was said to have a step-sister called Katina and a step-brother called Billy Papadopoulos.
If any of these names ring a bell with anyone then please do let me know.
Maria left for the UK in '55 and passed away in London in '74.
