Biography: Rick Roberts



Rick Roberts


Ricks' family history addiction began during summer vacations on his grandparents' farm where rainy days were spent sorting through family pictures, documents and artifacts while his grandmother told well-worn family stories. That early spark grew into a passion for genealogy and history that eventually led to the founding of Global Genealogy in the summer of 1992. Rick is especially interested in the historical events that influenced the lives of his ancestors... what pushed them to make the decisions they made... and what pulled them to the lives that they led.
