    3. Rootsweb mailing lists are automatic and are managed by list robots. These robots take care of subscription requests and bouncing (rejected) emails. The most frequently asked question of subscribers is: ***************** "Why have I been unsubscribed?" Answer: If your list mail cannot be delivered for any reason, the list robot unsubscribes you after a certain number of failed attempts. (For the CYPRUS list the maximum member bounce score is: 3) This can happen for a number of reasons - some of the more common reasons are that your mailbox is full, your spam filter is blocking the list mail, your ISP is blocking list mail from Rootsweb, you have put an automatic responder on your email.... If you were unsubscribed and did not wish to be taken off the mailing list, simply subscribe again. However be forewarned that if whatever caused the list robot to unsubscribe you the first time is still happening, it will simply remove you again after a specific number of bounces--3--(rejected list mail to your email address). But as a courtesy to all CYPRUS listers, I can re-subscribe you manually. Just let me know. ****************** Other questions asked are: "How do I unsubscribe?" Answer: Simply follow the instructions at the bottom of every list mail message. ****************** "Why is my mail not getting to the mailing list?" Answer: Make sure that you are sending from the same email you are subscribed under. The list robot does not recognize names. It only recognizes email addresses.

    1. [Cyprus] Suggestions re British in Cyprus c 1882
    2. Can anyone suggest how I might get clues about why an English family might have been living in Cyprus in 1882? John William BROMLEY was born in Larnaca on 20 June 1882 (and his sister Amy Rose Bromley POSSIBLY in 1880) to John Bromley and his wife Jane Amelia. This is possibly a naïve question as maybe they just liked it! - however father was not in the military, in later years seems to have been absent for long periods (although still thought of as head of the house), and may have also lived in China (Shanghai) and/or Japan. Presumably there was a substantial British Civil Service component there so maybe he was a civil servant. Any ways of finding out? Was Cyprus a substantial trading port; and of any particular goods? I confess my ignorance about Cyprus and will be grateful for any suggestions. TIA, Paul Parker, Auckland NZ

    1. [Cyprus] Can anyone possibly help?
    2. David Allan
    3. About a couple of years ago, I posted to this newsgroup asking for help to try and possibly make contact with someone called Douglas ALLAN. I had a couple of tantalising replies which gave me grounds for optimism, but sadly I haven't made much more progress. I thought I would try one more time! To explain... I had a great uncle called William Andrew ALLAN, who as far as I know, I never actually met. William was born in London in 1895 and died in Stithians, Cornwall in 1970. A few years ago I located his grave and spoke to few people who had vague memories of him when he was living in the area. It appears that William had a son called Douglas ALLAN and that this Douglas eventually settled in Pafos, Cyprus. I have a single photograph of this Douglas as a young boy with my uncle Peter ALLAN. All I have managed to glean about Douglas is that probably worked for the British Government and that his work took him to somewhere in Africa. I am led to understand that this is where he might have met and married his wife, who was a black African. I also was told that he had a boat, which was kept at Falmouth, England. He sailed this boat from Falmouth to Cyprus, where he retired. The last time I posted to this newsgroup, I had an e-mail from a couple who had bought a house is Pafos and got in touch to say they were sure that it had previously been owned by a Douglas ALLAN and that they had found some magazines relating to nautical navigation left in one of the cupboards in the house. I felt convinced that this was probably THE Douglas ALLAN that I was trying to track down and this feeling was further reinforced by the fact that someone had said his wife was dark-skinned. As time goes by, it becomes an increasing possibility that Douglas may have died. However, I have been given to believe that Douglas may have had at least one child and if that's the case, that child could be living in Cyprus. So, once again, I am asking for help to try and find out whether Douglas ALLAN, or his wife or offspring are still alive and living in Cyprus. Does anyone subscribing to this list have any snippets of information which may help me out? My great uncle William ALLAN is something of an enigma to me and Douglas may be the only person who can help throw light onto this corner of my ancestry. Any help in trying to find out what happened to Douglas or his family will be very gratefully received. Kind regards... David Allan (Sunderalnd, England).
