Take your ancestors from names on paper to multidimensional people who lived, breathed, loved, lost, and helped you to be who you are. Benefit from 40+ years of experience in folklore, history, genealogy, law, and tools of FamilySearch, Ancestry, Newspapers.com and more. I learn from my many mistakes, I teach from those lessons. I interview genealogists and authors. I discuss Reparational Genealogy - how Anglo- or European-American researchers can assist African-American researchers in restoring connections destroyed by centuries of chattel slavery. I even give recipes from ancestral meals in the Family Cookbook episodes. And if YOU want to be interviewed, let me know!

    Skelly Rellies, Jeffreys and Consecration, Oh My!

    I have three things on my mind today, and all opportunities for sharing and growth:* Share an mp3 recording of an ancestor's story that you think is interesting, unique, creepy, or fun! I will edit it into the Halloween, Skelly Rellies episode of the podcast. Soft deadline is October 15, hard deadline is October 20.* Don't be a Jeffrey, part #9,237 - there's been some jackery-peggery and we need to nip that stuff in the bud.* Learn, teach, and serve the community by consecrating your talents and interest on Social Justice Sundays, during classes/work sessions I'm holding weekly on Sundays at 3pm ET on Zoom (with audio simulcast on Clubhouse). Contact me for meeting info - we were troll-bombed this week and that won't happen again!The magical season is upon us.

    Consecration, Recy Thomas and African-American Genealogy, or Reparational Genealogy

    Consecration, Recy Thomas and African-American Genealogy, or Reparational Genealogy

    This episode is directed primarily toward European-American Mormons, but no matter what, you will get something out of it. I discuss the Mormon Law of Consecration and how I apply it to family history work and working with others; the differences between African-American and European American genealogy; and the specific case of my research on a reparational tree for Recy Corbitt Taylor and anyone who may search out her family.

    The Glory of the Story

    The Glory of the Story

    Folklore is great for finding facts and hints to start a tree, but it's equally wonderful for entertainment and for preserving the memory of family elders for all generations, current and future, to enjoy. If your family tells stories, this is for you. If they don't but you like stories, this is for you. If you just want to hear one of MY family stories, this is for you. And above all, if you want to hear about a bit of felonious scandal from my family's past, this is for you. I hope you enjoy the ep, and my new theme music too!

I Just Found This Podcast

I am just getting started on genealogy so have been focused on finding resources. I joined a local genealogical society here in Williamson County, Texas and today, in a virtual meeting, someone shared the name of this podcast. So I listened to my first two episodes and I’m all in! I am going to binge listen to every episode! Carolynn is like having a professor in your smartphone!

Great Juneteenth episode

As a white woman she approached the subject by countering all of the racist lies we have been taught in history classes. She clearly cares so much about doing her industry justice and I love her straightforward story telling.
