Here in New Zealand we are a day ahead of you, so we have a head start in observance of the Genocide, and Isobel Bayrakdarian’s recording of Gomidas songs will be played during breakfast.
My wife Hilary and I are cousins, our maternal grandmother being Clara Melita Holmwood Zohrab King. Clara’s father and grandparents, Constantine Edward Z and Peter Thomas Henry Gordon Z respectively, arrived here in 1863. Peter was born in Malta in 1819, his father and uncle having survived some unpleasantness in Isfahan, where the family had lived since being moved by Shah Abbas from Julfa ca 1600. Whether we are related to Krikor I don’t know; I believe our ancestor in 1600 had his Christian name, family Manucharian, into a surname.
