Could someone help me decipher this please?

昭和参拾年参月弐拾日親権を行う者がないため後見開始 同年拾弐月弐拾六日後見人某所某氏同籍某女就職につき 届出昭和参拾壱年壱月六日受附㊞

So, there's no punctuation, and there aren't many particles, but I think what's happening is this:

"20 March 1955: due to there being no one to carry out the parental obligations a certain person and his wife of a certain address became legal guardians 26 December 1955. Report received due to becoming employed 6 January 1956."

Alright, that hardly makes any sense. I'm not entirely sure when what happened and where 就職につき falls into this. They submitted the report due to becoming employed and it was received on 6 Jan 1956? Am I anywhere near this?

Further information: this is a married couple becoming legal guardians of an 8-year-old. I still can't seem to make sense out of the timeline or what becoming employed has to do with anything.
