My mother's maiden name was Zietsman. Her father was I think called Christian Frederick or Philip Zietsman - he was one of about 9 or 10 brothers. My mom said her fathers parents came to South Africa from Germany at some point in the 1800's. My mom was born in Craddock in 1933 - seem to think my grandfather's family also came from Vrede - I need to check all of this.I would love to know more about my Grandfather's family - I have traced my dad's family back to the 1500's so I feel this is missing. I live in Ireland now.
