to this Family History site
The Edie Family first settled in Central
Otago in New Zealand's South Island in the early 1860s. Since
that time the family has grown and dispersed, so that it is now
spread throughout New Zealand, and indeed the world. Sadly, there
is no longer any direct descendant of the family living in that
area of Central
Otago which today still carries the family name - Edievale.
This site was created by a descendent of one branch of the family.
It does not claim to be exhaustive or complete. It does not even
claim a monopoly on historical or other accuracy. And if you detect
a bias towards one particular branch of the family (or line of
descent) I can only say that it reflects my interest, parentage,
and sources of information.
It reflects a life-time's interest in family history, and a wish
to record what has been learnt in that time.
If you spot inaccuracies inconsistencies, or omissions, PLEASE
let me know,
so together we can correct them, and thereby improve the value
of the site as an historical record.
Finally, please understand that this is a "work in progress"
and, as such, remains incomplete.
