I can’t tell you how excited I am to announce that the Alberta Family Histories Society is bringing Dave Obee to Calgary to present four different talks on doing genealogy research in Canada. Dave Obee is an internationally known writer, presenter, research and teacher and his works are standard titles used by libraries and researchers the world over. I know that I use his books all the time in my work as a genealogy and local history researcher and consultant. I have never heard Dave speak, but I have had more than one person tell me that they would go to any presentation that he gives because he is such a great speaker. Even if you think you know everything about a topic, he always has something new to add to your research arsenal. I can hardly wait.
The event will take place on April 5, 2014 at the Sheraton Cavalier Hotel in Calgary. You can find information and a registration form at http://www.afhs.ab.ca/familyroots/ And the best thing about this is that is soooo inexpensive. You will be able to see one of the acknowledged leaders is the field of Canadian (and other) genealogy research for the incredibly low price (if you register before March 1) of $35.00! That is a steal of a deal, but if you register you and your loved one before Valentine’s day, you will save $10.00 on the two registrations. This is darn near a giveaway. Even after March 1 when the price goes up to $45.00, it is still an excellent deal.
So, what I’m saying is, you have the opportunity to hear one of the best and most knowledgeable researchers around today for a ridiculously low price (really, I can’t even fill up my subcompact car for $35.00). How can you say no?
Need more convincing? Check out Dave’s website http://www.daveobee.com/ You’ll be able to read his bio, check out the great books he’s written (and even download some of them for free) and see a picture of him receiving his Honourary Doctorate at the University of Victoria. C’mon now, you really have to come to this seminar!
