Dave Obee is a journalist and genealogical researcher who has written a dozen books and given more than 600 presentations at conferences and seminars in Canada, the United States and Australia since 1972. In 2012, Dave was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Laws by the University of Victoria for his work as a historian, genealogist and journalist.
The Canadiana website has a vast amount of material for the family historian, but not many use it or even know about it. Canadiana’s rich genealogy and local history collection includes local and family histories telling of pioneering, settlement, and local government in early Canada. This talk is your guide to mining the 40 million pages of primary-source documents.
