Michala has been a professional genealogist for the past fifteen years. Eight years ago she set up her own genealogy company called Unearth the Past. In that time she completed family trees for a variety of people from teachers to Hollywood film stars. Michala was one of the first genealogists to promote Ancestry’s use of DNA to unearth more about a person’s past. She has appeared on BBC’s Heir Hunters as well as Who Do You Think You Are?
Michala has written articles for genealogy magazines such as Who Do You Think You Are and have given family history talks for companies such as Find My Past, McCarthy and Stone and the British Newspaper Archive.
