It's time to share yours.

In 2015, I created 'Roots: Everyone has a story.' as a way to share my family's stories.

In 2023, I launched a 
first-of-its-kind family history podcast where each episode will feature everyday researchers and dive into their own family history stories.

What is "Roots"?

"Roots: Everyone has a story." is a way of documenting the stories that make up my family's history and introducing stories of everyday family researchers. 


So many times, people focus on gathering facts about their ancestors, but never bother to gather the stories.  Whether they're first-hand stories that have been passed down through the years, or stories that I've assembled from newspaper research, my goal is to explain my family's history in a way that makes it fun, exciting and digestible. 


It's important to me to fill in the stories that often make up the "dash".  You know, the dash, or hyphen, that lives between someones birth and death dates on their headstone?  That "dash" represents all the living that our ancestors did.  They weren't always old; they were kids who played outside, teens and twenty-somethings that fell in love and friends to others who liked to get together and socialize.  This is my effort to document their lives in a way that lets us get to know them on a deeper level. 

No matter when they lived, they all have a story to be told.
