Menezes family in Madeira/South Africa

I am in South Africa, and need to trace my ancestors that came two generations ago to this country. If anybody can assist me in doing this, I will be oblidged. His name was Manuel Gonsalves Menezes and arrived in South Africa in the thirties. He was born in Madeira in approximately the year 1916. Thank you.
