I guess you aren't as smart as I even thought you were. Eadgyth is old
Anglo-Saxon for Edith as I looked it up in some old records on the net.

Why I do believe some of you are jealous, what is wrong with being a Bible

of the oldest genealogy in the first and second books of Chronicles. You
should check it out some time, very intersting reading.

Eadgyth
