She has a degree in English Language and Literature from the University of St Andrews (Scotland) and a Certificate in Professional Genealogy from Boston University. She is passionate about history and genealogy. Recent projects have included a search for a Scottish immigrant to California during the Gold Rush; an investigation into an ancestor’s connection to Andrew Carnegie; the history of a San Francisco house and its direct connection to the Summer of Love.

She is also a big believer in the power of DNA testing for genealogical information. In October 2016 she attended a 2-day conference in San Diego, CA, hosted by the Institute for Genetic Genealogy. In January 2017 she successfully completed “DNA Bootcamp”, a week-long practical course in the application of DNA testing for genealogical purposes, held at SLIG in Salt Lake City. Her teachers have included CeCe Moore, Karen Stanbury and Paul Woodbury.

Maggie is fluent in Italian and can also facilitate document translation in French and German.
