The above was born 1922 in Hampshire. Went to Sydney, Australia in June 1956 and was a Nurse. Please can anyone help to shed any light on her in Oz i.e: like when she died (if she did) or where she was living. She was a single lady at the time of emmigration.

Many thanks

Phyll

Australian Electoral Rolls, 1903-1980
Name: Kitty Guyatt
Gender: Female
Electoral Year: 1958
State: Queensland
District: Fisher
Subdistrict: Wondai

Living in at Wondai Gen Hospital as a nursing sister.

Don't know if it's the same lady or a coincidence as this isn't NSW.

Wow MarieCeleste that was quick.

I am so grateful to you - my friend has been looking for this woman for a long, long time.

Thank you, thank you.

Problem is that the marriage index only goes up to 1950 so if she did marry I wouldn't be able to trace it and a subsequent death.

I'd suggest amending your heading to include Australia, then the Oz experts will spot it and may be able to help further.

Thanks Shirley for all your help.
This Jessie Catherine Guyatt has thrown a spanner in the works - I don't suppose it says how old she is?

Hi Phyll and Shirley,
I have typed out all the ER details for Jessie 3 times and my server keeps crashing.
If Phyll can fit this family into her own research, then there is more info on other children ect.
I am sure it's the same Jessie Caherine from the 1958 ER

Hi Anne

Apologies for delay in replying.

Thank you for the information. I don't think this is the family of my Kitty Guyatt unless they were uncle/aunt but I don't think so.

Maybe it was coincidental that a Kitty was shown with Jessie Catherine Guyatt. Probably going to be my 'brickwall'.

Thabks again

Hi Phyll

You are not being ignored.........

It is just that no one seems to be able to find any further info at the moment.

I appreciate that Pricklyholly - I just want to keep it 'alive' in case someone does find anything. Kitty may even be alive and aged about 90.
