The website for the Dictionary of Falklands Biography is proving capable of significant expansion. Designed and established by Tom McAdam in 2018, the editor David Tatham and the researcher Stephen Palmer have used the freedom offered by a website in a number of ways.
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).
An academic based at the University of Edinburgh will be soon visiting the Falkland Islands to study the recent history of sport on the Islands, and in international competitions.
Two hundred and fifty years on, the story of a bold Falklands naval adventure has been purchased for the local museum in Stanley. Friends of the Falkland Islands Museum and Jane Cameron National Archives (FIMA Friends) executive committee member Alexandra ‘Zaz’ Shackleton was browsing at the regular antiquarian travel book fair at the Royal Geographical Society in London, when she came across a volume that she immediately knew belonged in the Falklands.
