      In an act of shameless self-promotion, I'd like to alert list members to a forthcoming book on St Helena which I have just edited:
      Trevor W. Hearl, St Helena Britannica: Studies in South Atlantic Island History (London: Society of Freinds of St Helena, 2013)
      See below for the table of content.
      Even if your ancestors aren't mentioned, if you like local colour and some good stories, then do pick up a copy.
      Alexander Schulenburg
