Saying hi and I'm from the USA (Washington D.C.) born and raised. Have a wife and soon to be a father.

I joined this forum because I'm looking to educate myself and learn about my family history and culture (I'm lost). My grandmother that is now around 98 won't talk about anything about Cyprus we have tried to get answers from her but it was to painful for her, so we stopped asking her a long time ago.

I knew my grandmother is a Cypriot born native that been there way before the war happen. We knew she was from Limossal. About 7 years ago we got re-united with our other family in Cyprus. We thought there were none left after a discovery made from one of our cousin that found them on Facebook. Just recently my parents just came back from Cyprus. They found out that my grandmother is from the village called Sillikou or Silifke or something like that. My parents went to the village and found the property (her sister has the deed) but the house is demolish from what there are saying.

I'm planning to make the trip next year or so.That I can meet my other relatives that I never met before and hope they can educate me about the family history.
