Hi, Joan,

Thanks for your note. As you have found your aunt in the 1910 US Census, but not in the 1920 Census, it is likely that she migrated to England after 1910. The only accessible UK Census after that date is the 1911 UK Census
and I think this is only accessible through some of the pay-to-view sites, such as and I have looked at the Ancestry site but it seems that you need a fairly good idea of where they
lived to be able to find someone via the index, and then you may need to spend money. The FindMyPast site was the first one to have the 1911 Census and it has a name index. I searched for GIBOO and GIBEAU but with no success. This may be because the transcribers could not read her name, or
because she was not in England at that time. If you will let me have details of the lady's name, date and place of birth, and anything that you know about her in England, I will make some enquiries over here. You can contact me by email lancaster.jim then 'at' then

Hope this helps
