Looking for Falkland Island Biggs and McAtasneys

Looking for Falkland Island Biggs and McAtasneys

Surnames: Biggs, McAtasney
Pleas help. I have a handwritten (very extensive) family list of the Biggs family descended from James and Margaret who emigrated to the Falkland Islands on the brig HMS Hebe on 9 October 1841 from Portsmouth, England. Unfortunately a lot of it is fairly illegible and I know that one of the Biggs family on the Falklands has a recorded family tree.

I also am looking for information on the McAtasneys (John McAtasney and Ellen Baker) who emigrated to the Falklands in 1894.

Thanks
Jenny

did you get a response yet? certainly my grandmother (and maybe your great grandmother) wrote that family tree. My dad Bernard Noel was first cousins with Denis McAtasney, and i used to write to Mamie (Denis's Mum).
Please post an email address and i will respond in person
regards

I have had one response but they just said they were looking into it (someone from Australia), so I hope they respond soon.

Yes I think it was my great grandmother - Kathleen? who wrote the tree. I met your dad Noel in England and his second wife Una (I think that was her name) when I was a kid. Dannis was my uncle and Doreen was my mother. Mamie was my grandmother.
My email address is allbymyself@gmail.com. I'm so excited that you've answered my post and can't wait for you to email me. Thanks so much Sheelah (cousin?)

Best wishes
Jenny
