Hi there from canada. I am also a decendant of cornelius griffioen,,,,,but of another i am sure as i have never heard of you before. My father John Harry Griffioen immigrated to canada around 1940 or so. He married Wilhelminia Koster and together they had 4 children. Trixie, Ralph, Keith and Bert. Our last name was changed before our father married to Griffin, but we have a copy of the family crest as well. The rest of the griffioen family is still in holland. Except for John's youngest brother Willem Griffioen,,also changed to griffin.
I would be greatly interested in meeting more of my family that have immigrated or that would like to correspond.
thank you, Trixie Griffin
