Reply with quote

My ancestors came from Saxony, so it might be Slavic in origin. Could you help me?

Soldier,

Even if your ancestors were of Slavic origins, the surname itself has German roots. I was not able to find any information in sources concerning Polish surnames.

But, I've checked also the surname distribution map and in 2002 there was 1 person using this surname living in Gorzów Wielkopolski: http://www.moikrewni.pl/mapa/kompletny/zeibig.html

You can also see similar map for Germany: http://www.verwandt.de/karten/absolut/zeibig.html. It is quite popular surname there (ca. 900 people bearing this surname).
