Re: Newspaper Announcements
In Response To: Re: Newspaper Announcements ()

Based on the information I've come across over the years. The name orginated in Belgium. There was a small village with the name Mazique of course it was spelled differently. There are about 20 different spellings of the name. Our ancestor August Mazique was a slave who came from South Carolina which is where descendents of the Belgium Maziques ended up. I believe though they spelled their names Massiek. Story has it our Maziques may also have ties to Martinique. However, I've found no proof of this. I don't know E. Mazique but I've recently been in communication with her brother Reginald. He's helping me update their branch of the family information to include in the Mazique Booklet I am working on.
