  About in-Faro and the Algarve's history

Over the course of my research on some famous portuguese biographies, I started to find similarities in my intention with this project and the intentions of João de Deus (with his Cartilha Maternal - Maternal Booklet) and Ataíde Oliveira:

- With João de Deus: turning Algarve history more appealing (to João de Deus has been teaching reading and writing) by avoiding: boring articles, need for extra searches to the absolute understanding of some words/names/expressions, complex language used in the most credible sources, the discrepancy between the various information sources (which confuses and discourages). The more I search the more I realize the interest that our history is.

- With Ataíde Oliveira: reviving Algarve history so that it doesn't become only for those dedicated to the study of history. As much as there is written here and there, it's only small parts of a whole. This project aims to become this whole for what I count on your collaboration.

Released September 27, 2011, it is still in the beginning and with many ideas to project. For now, the goal is to reach all Algarve with biographical pages / interesting historical places / legends; later followed by further steps: in-faro.com is constantly evolving. Even the pages already posted online can in the future be enriched. The egg is laid...

Collaborate

Sometimes we have at our own homes or memories some lost information that would be of public interest: captivating information that arouse the desire to know more and to wake up memories of those who lived. So, I ask you that if you have any information, photograph, drawing, suggestion, critic, translation, etc.. that can enrich this project, please send it to infaro.algarve@gmail.com.

There is no sponsorship or funds for now, and the support that exists for now is my family and closest friends to whom I am very grateful. I count on you all that this project can grow and become, at least what I envisioned for you. Show how you would like to see it grow by sharing it and spreading in-faro.com.

Thank you for your cooperation!
