Interested in anyone with knowledge of, or researching the name RAAFF (sometimes spelled RAAF) We are compiling a full family tree or all the descendants of the original immigrant to South Africa who arrived in the early 1800s.

Dear Lorraine - thanks for responding. I have forwarded your post to two other RAAFF family members who are researching the family as well, one of whom is a professional genealogist. They may respond to you directly.
I am the granddaughter of Maud Caroline nee RAAFF daughter of Johannes Jacobus RAAFF who in turn was the son of the same named father...She married Ronald MACKENZIE who came out to fight in the Boer War and their daughter Sheila was my mother.

Look forward to hearing how you fit in - I have an extensive
RAAFF tree already having worked on it for years with the other two...Also lots of photos..

Hi Viv, Just got your e=mail today. I wish I knew more about the Raaff ancestry, but haven't got too much information for you. However I do know of two people that may be of help to you. The first is Michael Raaff of Port Elizabeth in South Africa. We had contact some months back when he was doing research into our family. His grandfather and my grandfather were brothers. His address is raaffpe@intekom.co.za
and the other is my first cousins daughter who lives in Texas. She has also done some research and her address is berylvb@verizon.net
