Assalam alekum Akhi Abdulsatar. In order for you to find your family lineage, you should check his tribal name. This is how we identify our origin, example, Mohammed  Ahmed Al Harazi , we.associate him to Haraz tribe. Just like my name, Walid Hussein Ahmed Albar, my tribe is from Albar tribe in Hadramout.
Work on this one first and dig in any document that your father msy have left.
Barak Allaho Feek and wish you the best of luck.

Salam Alikom brother..my pleasure to talk to you about families.my father cusion is looking for his family there is information telling us they left to Africa long time ago but we never heard about them again.there is something take my intentions which is Nasser Bin Nasser.brother Nasser bin Nasser is my father grandfather please give me more information you might belong to us

Salam alekum Akhi Abdulsataar. Sorry for the delay in responding to you.
I actually live in Laos, and we do not have a Yemeni embasdy here.
If you have a Yemeni embassy in south Africa, just approach the cultural attache
and they can shed more light. I have only heard of the Mujahid tribe in the north, but never had contacts with the tribes in the north.
Best of luck, Wasalam

Salam Alekum brother Samsalimi, Finding one's ancestors in Africa after close to a century,would be very complicated. Yemenis migrated to Somalia,Ethiopia,Kenya and Tanzania.
I was able to trace my Hadrami roots, eventhough i was born and raised in Ethiopia. My great great grand father came to Ethiopia and settled there. We stuck to our tradition and language, making frequent trips to our ancestrol town in Wadi Doan.
My advice Akhi is, embark on a trip to Yemen to trace your root, but only when the political climate is conducive.
Wasalam Alekum Akhi
