Magdalena Petronella CONRADIE (*30.5.1883, ~5.8.1883)

According to the Richmond NGK baptism records, this is the child of Christiaan Gert CONRADIE and Magdalena Elizabeth GROVE. As far as I can tell there are no further baptisms recorded for her parents. In both her parent's death notices there is no mention of a Magdalena Petronella, only a Magdalena Elizabeth.

According to Magdalena Elizabeth CONRADIE's gravestone she was born on 29 May 1883 and not 30 May 1883.

Despite this slight inconsistency I have identifed the baptised Magdalena Petronella as Magdalena Elizabeth, known to the family as Tant Lenie.
