Jan-31-18  zanzibar: Let's try to get the name in better shape:

<Dinah Magaret (Dobson) Norman> (about 80% way down w photo)

Her maiden name (or just former?) was Dobson - and under that name was British Ladies ch in 1967, '68, '69.

Feb-01-18  Nosnibor: <Zanzibar> Getting the name and former names in better shape and correct spelling :- Dinah Margaret Dobson. She married first time Danny Wright and became Dinah Wright and she was this name since I played her three times with 2 wins and one draw to my credit. She later divorced and married her present husband and is now Dinah Norman.
Feb-01-18  zanzibar: Thanks <Nosnibor> for the better history.. which should go into the bio someday.

As an aside, I think recorded games should stick with the names that was used at the time, to match up with the contemporaneous press and record lists, if nothing else.

Since <CG> uses a pid, that could easily also go into the PGN for comprehensive searching purposes, and uniquely ID'ing a player.

Feb-01-18  zanzibar: <Nosnibor> almost forgot to ask - but do you have any idea on the years she used the different names?
