Biography: Rick Roberts

Rick Roberts

Ricks' life-long interest in history and genealogy led him to a career change in 1992, when he and his wife Sandra, founded Global Genealogy. Rick is especially interested in the historical events that influenced the lives of his ancestors -- What pushed them to make the decisions they made? What pulled them to the lives that they led?

List of current lectures:
    Researching Canadian First World War Records Using Online and Traditional Resources
    (1 hour)
    Discover which Canadian military records are available to help you reveal the roles that individual enlisted Canadians played in World War One, where those records are, how to access them, plus tips and hints for interpreting Canadian military documents. We discuss those who served at home and/or overseas, those who applied for service and were rejected, those who returned from war, and those who didn't. A case study, compiled by using internet based and physical records will illustrate effective strategies, research processes and results.

    The Lanark Society Settlers, an Assisted Emigration Scheme
    (1 hour)
    The Lanark Society Settlers' emigration from Scotland to Eastern Ontario in the early 1820s is a representative example of the assisted immigration movement of the 19th century. We examine the circumstances that pushed settlers to leave all that was familiar to them, and the factors that pulled them to settle in the wilds of north Lanark County. The records used to locate Lanark Society Settlers' origins, migration, and settlement are identified and discussed. A case study format is employed. However, many references to other individuals' and families' contrasting and supporting experiences are included. The talk is illustrated with relevant images of places of Scottish origin, docklands, ship/s, accommodation, arrival, transportation, and settlement -- including maps and example documents. Related links: passenger lists (1821); History of Lanark Society Settlers.
