Instructor: Rick Roberts
Rick Roberts’ interest in family history began during summer vacations on his grandparents’ farm, listening to his grandmother’s well-worn family stories. That early spark grew into a passion for genealogy and history that led to the founding of Global Genealogy in 1992. Rick is especially interested in the events in history that influenced the lives of his ancestors, what pushed them to make the decisions that they did and what pulled them to the lives that they led. Rick’s early interest in genealogy has evolved into GlobalGenealogy.com, an online retail store selling many family history products, and Global Heritage Press, which publishes numerous history and genealogy titles.
