EDLIN family of Leicester, England and NZ
« on: Friday 11 June 10 02:04 BST (UK) »
I'm a complete beginner to this? I found a heap of posts on the Edlin family but it wouldn't let me reply so I'm posting here. Can the people that have family trees for the Edlins of Leicester please contact me? I'm an NZ Edlin, descended from George. I have a family tree but its not very detailed and quite difficult to make sense of! It goes back to Emma Edlyng 1516 but as I say not very detailed. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hullo and welcomr to rootschat :)

the reason you were not allowed to reply by PM[personal message] is that you have to have made 3 posts onRC before using that facility.

The most effficent way to egt in touch with the Edlin posters would be for you to make another post[ why not reply to me and say thank you ;D] and then you'd have made 3.  Then go back and send PMs to those you wish to contact ;D

As I suggested in my email to you it would be a good idea to make a post on the following thread:

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,129116.0.html

That thread is watched by a number of people with an interest in your family

Looks like its locked for some reason. ???

What I'd do in those circs, I'd go to the thread again,and try to PM the original psoter- the one who started that thread and PM her and ask about the Edlins.

She was online yesterday in RC so she's still active here.

Now you have 4 posts you can use the PM .
Give it a go and let us know what happens please. :)

I'm also a beginner, and have just joined Rootschat.  I have an extensive Edlin tree also going back to Emme Edlyng d.1515.  It would be interesting to compare notes.  I've no idea how to join the Edlin thread of the Forum.  ¿Can you help'?
