Education and Training
Stacey graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Human Resources Management from California State University, San Marcos, and holds certificates in Marketing and Social Media Management. In 2022, Stacey earned a certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University.
Stacey is a DNA researcher with expertise in Latin American research and has been with Legacy Tree since 2022.
Stacey’s interest in genealogy began when she interviewed her great-grandmother for a 4th grade school project. After she used DNA testing back in 2015 to solve a long-standing family mystery, she was hooked! Since that time, she has continued her genealogical education through institute classes at both the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh and the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy, and later earning a certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University. One of the things she enjoys most about genealogy research is how it gives someone the opportunity to connect with one’s ancestors and learn the stories, traditions, family dynamics, and circumstances that might have otherwise been lost to time. Stacey has been with Legacy Tree Genealogists since 2022. Her personal genealogy research is what ignited her interest in Latin American research but she has researched in locations around the globe. Her favorite thing about being a researcher at Legacy Tree is that no two projects are alike!
