Mayra Sanchez-Johnson

Expert in Genealogy, Heraldry and Nobility

Mayra has over 30 years of experience in researching records in Mexico, Spain, Portugal and the Islands that belong to these countries, like the Azores, Madeira and the Canary Islands. She obtained a degree of Expert in Genealogy, Heraldry and Nobility from the Universidad de Educacion a Distancia, established in Madrid, Spain, under the tutorship of the most experienced men of Spain in these fields. Her travels to Spain to do research have been a great joy and an opportunity that has given her experience in dealing with the local authorities in charge of the wealth of information stored in Spain’s many archives.

No project is to too big or too small. Finding your roots is always an important process that is deserving of the best attention and expertise. She values the interests of her clients in searching for their ancestry and discovering their family history. She takes pride in professional and attentive service. She has been providing quality service for over 20 years as a professional genealogist.

Most projects can be done using the materials at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City and Spain’s powerful websites.  On site research trips, and many other resources and facilities that are available are also considered,as the search develops, to help you achieve your family history and genealogy goals.


One unique area of expertise is Cuba. She has the sources and means to research your ancestors in this beautiful but troubled island. Please contact her for more details, since this is a “special circumstances” area of research.
