Adoptees' Date of Birth


1959 to 1960 My mother gave birth to a baby girl sometime before I was born in 1961 and gave the baby up for adoption. Her maiden name was Petronella Christina Susanna Viljoen and she probably lived in the Pretoria area at the time of the birth. I know she nursed at the Military Hospital.
1960 to 1966 I'm Belinda (age 33yrs) looking for my two sister, born between 1960 - 1966 (different fathers) in Pretoria. I have very little info to go by, but my mother is (Maiden name): Althea Sinclair and then she married and was Althea Smith. Which is very unusual. I think her brother Gary Sinclair was with at the time of adoption. It would be much appreciated if anyone can help thank you.
