QUIVIS whoever, whatever...
The focus of this website is now genealogy and Orkney. Some of the previous content can still be accessed via the links at left, not all of which are replicated below.
My LINKLATER ancestry, including Boissard, Soundy, Melville, Bell, Irvine, McLelland, Flint, Palmer and Roxburgh from among my immediate forebears, plus some 80 other surnames. My GEDCOM contains records of approximately 300 individuals and extends back to the mid-18th C. This section also includes a lot of background and historical information about Orkney in general and Sandwick, West Mainland, in particular. My paternal grandfather and great-grandfather have sections to themselves - see next two links below.
Robin Linklater, my brother,
describes himself as a “theatre designer specializing in costume and scenery
for Baroque Opera, prop and puppet maker, painter, draughtsman and teacher.”
He is also a better craftsman than I, and makes bronze figurines, hand bound blank books, painted, carved or decorative woodwork indcluding puzzles and toys, and other collectable treen made of British timber from historic sources. Don't take my word for it - or his - but click here and see for yourself!
Clicking QUIVIS anywhere will return
you to this page. Most images enlarge by clicking or hovering.
If in doubt, try! Some pages require a password. Any problems,
If you were looking for DESIGNLINK but couldn't find what you were looking for that's because
Designlink is a shadow of its former self. What was Designlink is now QUIVIS and it's all mine! ©
