Robert’s paternal grandfather was Adam Anastas Belushi (the son of Anastas/Anastos A. Belliors/Bellios/Belushi and Vasilo Manika). Adam was born in Albania.
Robert’s paternal grandmother was Agnes Demetri Samaras (the daughter of Demetri/Dimitri/Dimitrios/Demetre George/Jorgi Samaras and Anna D. Popa/Papajoseph). Agnes was born in Ohio. Robert’s great-grandparents were born in Korçë, now in Albania, with roots in Ziçisht and Grapsh. Demetri and Anna spoke Greek, but it is not clear if they were ethnically Greek, or if they identified as such. They are usually described in biographical sources on the Belushis as Albanian.
Robert’s maternal grandmother was named Kathryn.
