In its search for the best speakers it could find, the planning
committee for our biennial Expo/Seminar FamilyRoots 2004
discovered a well-qualified and knowledgeable authority on Canadian
military records - Mr. Rick Roberts.
Rick and his wife Sandra are also the ambitious owners of the Global
Genealogy & History Shoppe in Campbellville, Ontario.
Global Genealogy is widely known for its great fund of books, software
and other family history resources, especially those related to Eastern
In addition, Global Genealogy hosts The Global Gazette
keeps us informed on the latest position in the ongoing saga of the
release of the post-1901 Canada Census.
Rick kindly consented to come to Calgary and will speak at FamilyRoots
2004 on 'Researching Canadian Military Records'.
And further, he has contracted to bring a display of Global's books and
genealogy materials for the Expo component of FamilyRoots 2004.
Then, to top it off, it turns out the Rick is one of the most
knowledgeable people in Canada in the use of the very popular Family
Tree Maker software programme.
So, to round off the excitement of the FamilyRoots 2004 weekend Rick
has agreed to hold a one-day workshop on
