GREEK ANCESTRY

Most Greeks to America came in the first two decades of the 20th century, or after immigration restrictions were loosed in 1965.

In the 2000 census, 1,153,295 people in the U.S. claimed Greek ancestry.

ePodunk mapped the top communities by percentage of population. The map and the following list show communities in which 1,000 or more people listed an ancestry group, and in which at least 2 percent of those people said they were of Greek ancestry.

The links at left lead to information on other races and ethnicities.
