Emma MacBeath M.Ed, MSM
Emma is the founder and owner of Emma’s Family Treasures in the Seattle, Washington area.
As a child, watching my mother, aunt, and grandparents do family research, I caught the genealogy bug very early. For me, looking for clues to research questions has been like reading one incredible mystery novel after another! After teaching school for over a decade, I realized that both research and writing were my true passions and calling.
I have over 30 years of experience researching throughout the United States using a large variety of records, repositories, and methods. Once I caught the DNA bug, I began to incorporate its use in research using various programs for chromosome mapping and matching.
As a genetic genealogist, the majority of genealogy work I do is post adoption and biological family searches using DNA. I incorporate my variety of research experiences into these cases.
Only the highest standards of research and sound sources are used in every step of the research process.
