About the station

This award-winning podcast teaches how to take ancestors from names on paper to multidimensional people who lived, breathed, loved, lost, and helped us to be who we are. I'm a folklorist, historian, genealogist, lawyer (non-practicing), and member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I'll teach you all I can to find ancestors and details you haven't before. I'll tell stories from my 4 decades of mistakes and triumphs, with a tablespoon of snark mixed in. I'll teach you cooperative and Reparational Genealogy, and how Anglo- or European-American researchers can work with African-American researchers to restore connections destroyed by centuries of enslavement. I'll interview researchers in genealogy and related fields in all phases of their growth. I'll even give recipes from ancestral meals in the Family Cookbook episodes.
