In 1976 I startet collecting all occurrencies of Ziefle-namesakes (the variety of spellings see The Name). The Family Ziefle can be traced until about 1570 in the Black Forest in southern Germany in the surrounding of the town Freudenstadt. Some occurencies before 1570 are known, but not yet researched.
The origin of the name is not perfectly solved. Some facts about the name you can read in the section The Name.
Today three coats of arms are known. Just look to this section to learn more about it.
With The Location you get an overview to all the locations the Family Ziefle lived and still lives. If you can read German just switch to the German version: here are many pages which are not translated yet. See for example the (german) page about History of Igelsberg.
The earliest Ziefle's are known about 1394.
Between the years about 1570 till 1900 more than 1,500 namesakes are known. Many of them emigrated between 1850 and 1870 "in Americam", some went to Russia, some to Canada. Common things about the emigrations you can read in the section Emigrations. An alpabetic index of all known emigrated namesakes, a list of namesakes born in the USA and Ziefle in the U.S. Census Lists you will get with the section Ziefle in the USA. Additions are welcome !
At Family History you can read historical reports about the family. Old documents from the archives will be published her too. But - some of these pages are in German and so far not translated.
The Photoalbum shows pictures from namesakes born before 1900. Recent pictures that I found searching the Internet are there collected too.
With Graves you get a list where namesakes are buried.
A Family Reunion took place 1997 in Canada.
