About Your Genealogist

Looking for details of your ancestors or other persons in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington?

I am a genealogist in Seattle, Washington, providing look-up services to genealogists and family historians.

I focus on providing genealogy research services for an international client base, including attorneys, hobbyists, and others. I’ve been working with genealogy and family history for about 30 years.

Some of the resources I use include newspapers, city directories, and archival materials. I have visited the National Archives and Records Administration site at Sand Point, Seattle, Washington, and the University of Washington to use their special collections.

I’m available for social and business on LinkedIn (Nathan Maling), and Mastodon (@SeaGenes@lor.sh).

Find me on Fiverr to learn about my gigs.

The Origin of “Sea Genes”

Yes, I know that googling “Sea Genes” comes up with some obscure scientific research discussions. I chose the name because it’s a play on Seattle and my ancestry. A number of my ancestors were mariners and Navy men. Thomas Maling of Kennebunkport, Maine operated a rigging loft. His son, Moses, sailed and owned ships, traveling the world. Another of Thomas’ sons, George, also was a ship master. George Clement Perkins, another second great grand-uncle, also sailed. My father and both grandfathers were also involved with the sea at one time or another.
