     Research Note:
Kathleen Boyd from England is looking to make contact with anyone from Alexander's family in New Zealand. As well she has been researching the family in England.
Alexander had a brother called Fullerton Robert Boyd born 1906 West Derby.
The children may have been orphaned after their Mother Catherine died in 1910.
It also appears that Alexander came to NZ via the "SS Ionic" in Jan 1925 as part of the Salvation Army Boys immigration scheme.

If you are researching this family or can assist Kathleen in anyway with further information, can you please contact me so I can then forward your email to her.
Thank you.

Alexander and Annie had 3 children, still living.

Family: Alexander Guilford Boyd and Annie Elizabeth Fox
