Whats New? 2011

August 2011

Power Cuts

With the arrival of tempory generators and the fact that most of the island is on holiday for much of August, there has be an improvement in the power supply situation. Since the beginning of August there have been few power cuts at weekends. Since mid-August the number of power cuts has reduced with many days not have one at all.

New website navigation

Additional navigation is now gradually being added to the website. This is in the form of "breadcrumb" links on the right hand side just below the top menu. These "breadcrumbs" show the links that lead up to the current page.

This new feature should be especially useful for those visitors who come direct from a search engine to a grave detail page.

Enhancement of the findfamily search

If a family name search is unsuccessful, the webpage now displays all the family names held within the GPR database starting with the same first two letters.

July 2011

Evangelos Florakis Naval Base Explosion

At 6am on Monday 11th July 2011 a catastrofic explosion occurred at the Cypriot Evangelos Florakis Naval Base. The explosion happened when a bush fire reached an explosives dump and killed thirteen and injured over forty.

The explosives had been stored at the base since 2009 when they were confiscated from the vessel Monchegorsk because it was in breach of the UN Security Council Resolution 1747.

The explosion was felt thirty miles away at the home of Charles Sale who runs the GPR. It is reported to have been the largest civil explosion ever.

Although it damaged much property in the surrounding area, the worst distruction was at the nearby Vassilikos powerstation which was virtually destroyed. It has been stated that two billion euros will be needed to rebuild the powerstation and that it will take at least a year.

Because Vassilikos supplied 50% of Cyprus' electric supply, the damage has had a tremendous impact on the whole country with power cuts every day. There is at least one power cut each day that lasts for just over two hours but sometimes there have been as many as five lasting nine hours.

This loss of power has had a disrupting effect on GPR and has meant that fewer new cemeteries have been added this month.

June 2011

French grave monuments now in the GPR databse

The GPR now has a few of volunteers in France. One volunteer has now started to photograph and index the extremely interesting cemetery at Montmartre, Paris. This cemetery is amazing not only for its stunning monuments but also because it contains the remains of many very famous people.

As part of the Montmartre project, the GPR is hoping to add a new feature to the website: biographical notes. At present this has not been implemented but once they start to become available the new feature will also be available.

Extra information about cemeteries

Extra information about cemeteries,when available, is now being displayed on the cemetery pages..

Adding extra information about people mentioned on a grave monument

Extra information about people mentioned on a grave monument can now be added to the GPR database. At present this can only be done immediately after requesting an image.

Extra information about people mentioned on a grave monument

When it is available, extra information is now displayed on grave information pages.

Cemetery location maps

The cemetery details pages have now been updated so that if a postcode is held within the database for a cemetery then a Google location map for the cemetery will be displayed. The cemetery records are gradually being updated with postcodes to take advantage of this new feature. You can see how it works by looking at the Dean Cemetery page. Currently this only works for UK postcodes.

User input validation

A new user input validation system has been implemented using GPR photos. You can see a demonstraion of it below:
