WHY GREEK FIRST NAMES ONLY
Posted by: Georgia Demetris (ID *****6751) Date: May 19, 2006 at 06:51:46

Anyone know why the greek cypriots don't (didn't) have surnames or didn't use them.

It makes it hard to trace one's ancestors when all you
have is the first names and either son or daughter of
and from the Village of. Any ideas on how old these
villages are and is there a record on the village history
and the families that came from there?

Is there a central genealogy records office/library in Cyprus and how far back do these records go? Are these
records still in Cyprus?

Any other suggestions on researching family genealogy in Cyprus would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
