Have any of you Waldie researchers considered or have had a Y- DNA tested on a male family member ?

No we haven't. I wasn't aware you can do that. What will getting a DNA test accomplish?

Hi I am researching on my husband side of the family. I am just wanting to no if Richard and Elizabeth had any more children or adopted any children? My husbands fathers name was James Edwards born 1918 and he lived in Dunedin and his fathers name started with a R Edwards? Also do you no if Richard was born in New Zealand. Thankyou

Stumbled on this post while searching Richard Currie Edwards today, I am descended from his brother William. Richard married Miss Waldie. I have a DNA match to one of their descendants, from memory.
