    Hi There

    I am Lizzie. I am trying to find out more about the "Sieszmann" family from Stolpe, Prussia, around 1771. One of my ancestors came from there. Paul Ludwig.

    Welcome to Skadi, Lizzie.

    I wonder, why is your ethnicity picked as Afrikaner? Are your ancestors Prussians who went to South Africa?

    Welcome.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    Well, the name she mentioned was indeed the 'stamvader' of the Afrikaner Zietsmans, who arrived here in 1771 as a soldier.

    When did you move to Canada, Lizzie?

    Welcome to Skadi, in any case. I'm doubtful as to how much help Skadi will be for your specific genealogical interest, but bear in mind it can be a rich source of information regarding other areas of our Germanic heritage as well.

    Welcome here, Lizzie. You could pose your question in the genealogy forum here: http://forums.skadi.net/forumdisplay.php?f=648
    Maybe peoples won't give you a precise answer but you could be directed to useful sources for your genealogical quest.

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy the stay.
