10/11 generations of  this sites creator, Ismail Veli 'Kirlapo'.

Researching into the family tree is often painstaking, emotional and exciting. Most of us have a desire to know our roots. In the case of Cyprus  with so little written evidence available it seems an impossible task. Its not until one embarks on this venture that one realises how many people are prepared to offer help. The 2 years research started with the aim of just my own family, with Luricinali's however things tend to take on  a different dimension. One thing leads to another and soon the burning desire to find out whos who completely takes over in a way only Luricinali's understand. Clearly one cannot achieve much unless people are forthcoming with the information. The original concern turns to elation when everybody suddenly chips in and assist in a way that completely surpassed my expectations. A massive thanks to Hussein Selim abi, Tina Kemran, Hayal Mehmet Kavaz, Ramadan Ismail 'fesa' Leman Bekir aba, Bekir Mehmet abi,  Furiye & Zuhtu Ramadan, Sheri and Mehmet 'Carta', Kemal 'ado', Soner Karagozlu 'taii' and many that i simply cannot mention.

ALPER MEHMET who unselfishly offered me records of the late, IBRAHIM TAHSILDAR who's family was kind enough to offer his work that helped bring this research to a much more advanced  level. My parents Fatma  and Mehmet Veli 'Kirlapo'  who provided the base to build on. Their  memory of families names and knowledge of our village never cease to amaze me. Everyones support has been truly awesome. Inevitably there may be some mistakes and gaps in the lists. The hope is that people  will come forward with names and dates to expand the information  at our disposal. If at some future date someone offers a translation from English to Turkish we will all be eternally grateful. My Turkish is simply not good enough to do a professional job.  Again a big thank you  to all who helped. My sincere apologies for any mistakes I may have done. I stand ready to be corrected at all times.  I hope everyone enjoys and  help us to add to our knowledge of our past so that our children and future generations will know who and where we came from. Last but not least our ancestors who are buried in the four corners of the world. From Australia, Canada, Turkey, the UK to the war cemeteries of Ancona Italy and  Cyprus, may they all rest in peace in the sound knowledge that they are and will always be remembered.
