    The Argentine branch
    The Argentine branch
    This article describes Edith Mary Clist who emigrated from Shoreditch, Taunton, to Argentina as a missionary in 1909. Not long after arrival she married another missionary, Alfred Jenkins of Bristol, whom she had known before he emigrated a couple of years earlier. Sadly, he died in 1927 leaving Edith to bring up their four young daughters Lydia, Priscilla, Dorothy and Betty. Three of the daughters married, and there are now many descendants from this branch of the family living in Argentina and in other parts of North America and Europe. After many years of lost contact, the New Zealand branch of the Clist family is once again in touch with the Argentinian branch, thanks to rediscovery of one another via the internet.
    George Clist's Family Bible
    George Clist's Family Bible
    Inscribed "George Clist and his dear wife Mary Clist, 1902" this massive book contains three pages of family births and deaths. After George Clist died in 1934, further entries were apparently made by his daughter Dorothy until her death in 1966. The Bible then passed into the possession of her neice Ida Dorothy Jenkins who lived in New Jersey, USA. It was this Dorothy who passed it on to Roger Clist in New Zealand.
