My name is Greg Sias and I have just joined EtzeYosef Project and paid for my DNA test to help me determine whether or not my ancestor is Abraham - father of nations- and to eventually determine Israelite Identity. My grand father; who has passed years ago, had a Sias family genealogy book. I don't think its the same as the one your touting with John Sias. My grand fathers book: which he said is registered in the u.s nationallibrary or congress library.. Im not sure. But 30 years ago I read some of it and the book with pictures said that my ancestors came from France and were once royalty. Sent here to oversee the french colonies in Louisiana and fell out of favor. Moved north and began the french canadian colonies until the British made war and sent them scurrying back acrossthe border to America. My ancestors eventually migrated to chicago and bought bogus property in Michigan. That was where we were robbed of our family fortune. I once recieved a phone book with every Sias in the world who had a phone listed. My number was listed a couple of times. Any how I noticed that we are scattered all over the globe. I googled Sias once and discovered that there are a few variations of the Sias name. In Mexico there is Cias. If you follow world history and know a little bit about the scriptural narrative, It becomes easy to put some things together. I may be right or I may be wrong, I am still in process; but I believe Sias is the greek form of the Hebrew Sia or siaha where we find it listed in the book of Nehemiah 7:47 and in Ezra. The name is listed under Temple Servants who came back after the Babylonian captivity. I believe the name can be associated with leviticalgenealogy. The roman dispersion in the 70's put us all over europe and asia minor. I feel that during the spanish inquisition, many Sias's of spain fled to mexico to flea persecution and death. As death was offered to all associated with the Jews who would not convert to Catholicism. Note: Many tribes make up what we consider jewish-- Levi and Benjamin are just 2 more of those tribes which fall under Yahuda.On another note-- I met a guy in Michigan who's last name was Sias and HE came from virginia or west virginia and his father founded a town called Sias in one of those states as well as owns half of the town. In Michigan their are both Sears and Sias's that seam to not want to mingle with our group of Sias's. I dont know why that is. Maybe they are just too good for us. My grand father and father had tried to make contact with them but was turned away.
