GEE family in WA
« on: Wednesday 28 March 12 02:19 BST (UK) »
I'm looking for information about the Gee family in WA.  I have basic BDM and electoral role information, but was hoping for some ideas on how to find more.

William James George GEE arrived in Fremantle in 1926 with his wife Charlotte Elizabeth Gee, nee Baker (1893-1939) and their four children.

Helen Sybil Gee (1919-?) – poss married 1940
Elsie Kathleen Gee (1920-?) – married Perth 1941, husband’s name not known
William George Gee (1923-1977) – wife Maureen Patricia ??.  Lived in Mt Claremont.
Gordon Lawrence Gee (1924-?) – married Maxine June Parker in 1948. Lived in Mt Barker

After the death of his wife Charlotte, William JG married Matilda Ann McCann (1905-1985) in 1944 they had a daughter, (*).  I have been unable to find any further information about (*).

I’d appreciate further information about any of the above, and would love to make contact with any living relatives.

Regards

Thankyou all so much for your prompt and very informative replies.  I must admit I am much more confortable with searching 17th century records that looking for more recent info!

I think I have found one of William Gee's grandchildren, so will also make contact with him.

Thanks for the additional info Bev.  I'm curious you have Gordon Lawrence dead in 1968.  I have him still alive and kicking in 1980 census. I'd appreciate if you'd let me know your source.

Given Helen was engaged to Sidney Watt in 1939, perhaps he joined up and didn't make it home, or perhaps Helen was sick of waiting and took advantage of a better offer!
