Rick Roberts' family history addiction began during summer vacations on his grandparents' farm. Rainy days were filled by sorting through family pictures, documents and artifacts while listening to his grandmother's well-worn family stories. His hobby evolved into a business when he co-founded Global Genealogy with his wife Sandra in 1992. Their genealogy supply business launched an online store three years later, soon followed by an online magazine. Rick began publishing history, vital records, and genealogy how-to books in 1997 under the Global Heritage Press imprint, adding the MacDonald Research imprint in 2007.
