In Reply to: Moulay Ziden by Sandee of 362

Hi, Sandee. I've just "inherited" this line, in a backward sense, by being told that I'm descended from a VAN SICKLE and hence from Eva Antonis JANSEN. If that's your line as well, I'd like to get in touch with you to check links along the way.

As for Sultan Moulay Ziden, I'm less interested in the name of his daughter right now than I am in that of his father. Was he of the S`ad dynasty, descended from the Sharifs of Marrakesh? Or was he some local ruler during a transitional period in Morroco? I've only begun to look into these matters -- This is really an exciting find!

You can post here, but please e-mail me as well at bigshoe@pacwest net -- I have so many lines in the pond, I don't always check them all. Cheers :-)
