Dave Obee presents "In Search of Home: Migration into, out of, and within Canada"
Understanding the flow of people will help you understand how your family fits in the history of the country. In some cases, records are available in Canada and in other countries, but in other cases, researchers will need to consider social history and traditional migration routes to understand the lives of their ancestors. Includes a look at the social history of the arrival of the railway, which helped bring massive development to the four western provinces.
Dave Obee is a journalist and genealogical researcher who has written a dozen books and given more than 700 presentations at conferences and seminars in Canada, the United States and Australia since 1997. He is a columnist for Internet Genealogy magazine, and has been awarded an honorary degree by the University of Victoria for his work as a genealogist, journalist and historian. He is the author of books on immigration to Canada and the Canadian census.
