    This photo was found in Sidney Clist's photo album. Lydia was Sidney's eldest neice, who lived in Argentina and whom he never met. This scan was shown to Lydia just a few weeks before she passed away, and she recognised her photo instantly without reading Sidney's inscription.

    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.
