    Falklands' Dictionary of Biographies, from text to a new website

    David Tatham, editor of the printed edition was very grateful to Tom McAdam who volunteered to set up the website with excellent links and very easy to navigate.

    The entire text of the fantastically informative Dictionary of Falklands Biography has been placed on a new website www.falklandsbiographies.org. In addition to the original 476 biographies, six new names have been added and more are to follow. Among the newcomers are Constance Allardyce, the wife of Governor Sir William, who was a respected palaeontologist and expert on Falklands fossils (written by Dr Phil Stone).
