Welcome Collingwood1.

You need to include a few more details on the BARRETT family are you researching in South Australia before anyone can assist you. A few given names and dates would be a good start.

Good luck.

Thankyou for the reply
I am trying to trace my grandfather. My fathers me was Ken barrett and he died in 1982. My mother Daphne Barrett nee green died in 2013. I never met my fathers mother and his father only once. All I know of him wash was a conductor. He lived in Bendigo Victoria but was in south Australia when he died in the early 70's
sadly I do not know his first name or that of my grandmother

Was your father's full name Kenneth Tansley BARRETT?

No it was Kenneth ernest barrett and his brother was john barrett. there is a history in Victoria I believe. My grandmother I know died soon after my mother and father were married
from that time I only ever met my grandfather on my fathers side once and at that time he was living in South Australia, Adelaide I assume.
I don't know if my grandfather had brothers or sisters. My father died in 1982 in palm Beach Queensland
It seems like a needle in a haystack as I really know nothing of my surname heritage or where my family are
