South Africa SIG #SouthAfrica Sieff #southafrica


I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of some
information on Sieff, possibly Ziv, who came to South Africa sometime in the
late 1800's early 1900's. My information is sketchy, but this is my great
grandfather. Family legend has it that he came >from Estonia or Lithuania to
England, put his son (my grandfather) and possibly another son on a boat to
Balitimore, Maryland. My great-grandfather then came to South Africa and
started a taxi company in Johanesburg, stayed for a while and then possibly
returned to his native land. My information is quite sketchy and I'm just
getting started, so any directions, advice, etc. would be most appreciated.

Thank you
