Hi Nana,

Thanks for responding. I am a Cypriot too, i live in Limassol. My great grandfather from me fathers side was a priest and his name was Evagoras, thats how we got the name Papaevagorou. I have managed to go that far back but thats all. I wanted to go further back, but it seems impossible to track it as in our country our surnames kept changing from generation to generation.

From mums side it has been even more difficult as she is from Akaki in Nicosia, I know my Granfather surname was Patera, and then in became Theouli for his children (grandfathers fist name) But i cannot go further back. Do you know of anywhere i can get such information?

Its seems even harder for the women in the family?

Thanks
Andrea
