About Me

Elizabeth started her genealogical path when she was gifted a book called “The Murray’s of Sutherland,” which documented several generations of her Scottish ancestors. This catapulted her into years of research, documenting her own Scottish family back to the early 1700s. Her love of history and her diverse heritage (Scottish and Dominican) fueled her passion for genealogy and immigrant research even further​​​. ​Elizabeth lives in Miami, Florida, but was born and raised in the northeast in a bilingual household. She earned a dual bachelor’s degree in International Relations and Spanish and is a graduate in Genealogical Research from Boston University. She is a Fellow for the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, and is currently writing intermediate-level Scottish genealogy course content for the University of Toronto’s National Institute for Genealogical Studies. ​Elizabeth specializes in U.S South-Atlantic and Mid-Atlantic states, Scotland, Ireland, Spain, and the Spanish Caribbean, particularly Cuba. She has access to all online genealogical databases. When those are not enough, she is well versed in state-level repositories, local libraries, and genealogical societies to help further her research and break down client walls. She also has established international contacts to further her research outside of the United States.
