The past few years have given family historians more change than ever before—and the rate of transformation is bound to increase in the years to come. Genealogists need to be ready. How do we do that? Easy!
Remember the basics of genealogical research, and live them every time you work on your ancestral challenges. Do not—repeat, do not—be fooled or distracted by the latest bright shiny things, which could be online trees, new websites or documents manipulated by artificial intelligence.
Speaker Dave Obee is Editor and Publisher of the Times Colonist daily newspaper in Victoria, British Columbia. He has been a journalist since 1972, working in British Columbia and Alberta. He has been researching his family history since 1978, and has written a dozen books on genealogy and local history. He has given more than 700 presentations at genealogical conferences and seminars in Canada, the United States and Australia since 1997. Dave was a member of the services consultation committee at Library and Archives Canada in Ottawa for four years.
The University of Victoria has awarded Dave with an honorary doctorate of laws for his work as a historian, genealogist and journalist. He is also the university’s honorary librarian and archivist.
Dave’s father has roots in England and Ireland. His mother was born in a German colony in Volhynia, in the northwest corner of Ukraine.
