Magilo's focus combines science and history to unravel ancestral genetic migrations
The September meeting of the South Shore Genealogical Society will be held at the John Curtis Free Library, Hanover, MA on Saturday, 9/20/2014. The meeting begins at 1:30 p.m. and is open to the public. Genealogist Mike Maglio is the featured speaker.
Mike is a third generation genealogist with 30 years of experience. His father-in-law, Warren F. Clark (author of Hathorn/Harthorn: The Ancestors and Descendants of William Hathorn of Cushing, Maine), greatly influenced and sparked his interest in genealogy. Warren’s aunt, Mary French (Cheney) Clark, started the family history in 1900. For Mike there were too many mysteries in his family, a Scottish side no one knew and an Irish side no one would talk about. Solving these mysteries and others like them has become Mike’s passion.
Mike is a professional genealogist, writer, and speaker. He graduated from Northeastern University with a B.S. in Engineering and has spent his career developing collaborative technologies. As a genetic genealogist, Mike advises on the use of DNA as a tool for genealogy. His focus combines science and history to unravel ancestral genetic migrations.
Mike offers genealogy services through his sitewww.OriginHunters.com and writes about his experiences at OriginHunters.blogspot.com. He is an active speaker, presenting a variety of genealogy topics throughout the New England area.
Mike was born and raised in Massachusetts. He is the son of an Irish-Italian father from the Northeast and Scotch-German mother from the Midwest. Mike lives with his wife, an artist and a writer, his three children, a Great Dane and two cats in Northborough, MA.
