Hi, I have just recently started researching my family. I am a Saayman, my mother is MacKinnon. My father is Marthinus Saayman, and he is from Albertinia, Western Cape, South Africa. It's very interesting what you wrote about the Zaaymans/Saaymans. I have never heard that. Was the original Zaaymans from the Netherlands? Do you know what date it was that they went to Mauritius?
I am very curious. I was never close to my father's family, and he has passed away, so it's difficult to trace my family on his side.
