THE BARRETT COLLECTION
In February 2016 John Barrett donated to the Ballarat & District Genealogical Society a document collection in the name of his father Roy Clifford BARRETT (1913-2005) son of William BARRETT and Laura May (CHIBNALL) of Ballarat, and husband of Edna Mary (KELSO). These documents, dating from 1858 to 1934, have been in the family for six generations and will be on permanent loan to the Society to display and to share with others. In the process of cleaning out the family home for sale the value of these historical documents was recognised and we agreed to take good care of them as important items in our collection which is housed in the Australiana Research Room at Ballarat Central Library.
