About Cornelia Viljoen

In the Viljoen Familieregister volume 3 page 1017 her surname is given as de Bruin.

Note by Chris Steyn: However, her granddaughter, Lynzelle Muller, wrote in a personal communication to me: Cornelia Viljoen ( de Bruin) was my paternal grandmother. I am trying to research her family. She was born with a male name Cornelius because her father wanted a boy, but changed it later in her life to Cornelia. She was adamant that her surname was de Bruyn, not de Bruin. I know she had siblings. Sincerely, Lynnzelle Muller (Viljoen)
