Time Will Tell

By Jason Hall

In this podcast I will discuss genealogy and family stories. We will discuss how DNA can open the door to many interesting things. I have been doing family history work for 30 years, I'm not a professional by any means. We will work through things and learn together. We'll share DNA stories from listeners as well as stories they've found in their family history research. Come on and join us. I promise it will be fun and we'll learn at the same time!

The 1950 Census

The 1950 Census

As always one of the things I like to do on this podcast is introduce people who are new to genealogy and family history to tools that can help them in their search. In this episode I introduce listeners to the 1950 census. This is by far not a deep dive, but its a place for new family history researchers to start.

If you have any questions at all or would like me to help get you started on your family tree we can talk about that as well. You can find all of the ways to contact and support us here If you'd like, you can send a DM on any of our social media accounts, or you can email me at

Please share your stories with us as well. If you'd like to be on the show and discuss your family history finds, your DNA surprises, or your adoption journey let us know. We would love to have you on. You can reach out to me all the ways I shared in the link tree link above, or through the same email. I look forward to hearing from you.

Seasons Change

Seasons Change

In the final episode of season 1 I go over where I've been, where I'm going and what's coming in season 2!

With Season 2 around the corner, I need your help! I need the following:

  • Family history stories. Maybe there is someone in your family you'd love to introduce us to and talk about. Let's hear it! Tell us about those famous, infamous relatives or the ones that had an impact on you by learning about them.
  • DNA stories! If your DNA test revealed a surprise and you'd like to share that. I'd love to have you on the show. If DNA helped you find lost loved ones, or other family I'd love to have you on the show as well.
  • Adoption stories. These are special to me. If you were adopted and you'd like to share your story of what it was like to grow up adopted, or to find out that you were adopted and your search for your biological family. I want to have you on the show! If you gave up a child for adoption, I want to share that as well. I would love to share your story to help others and maybe even help those who are still looking for their biological families to find them.
  • Stories about food and family  history.
  • Stories about the holidays and how you and your family celebrate them. Do you have some traditions passed down from generation to generation?

If you would have any of those and would like to be on the show we can do it a couple of ways. You can go to the website and go to the Contact Me page and send an email that way. You can click the link below to do a "call in" to the show. You can do that from your PC or your phone. Just make sure to give it access to your microphone.

Marsha's Beginning

Marsha's Beginning

In today's episode Marsha talks to us about how she got into family history and why its important to her now. She like many other young people had the idea that genealogy was something old people do. It's so important that we take the time we have when we are younger to ask our older relatives about their stories, any family stories, legends, or rumors even. Sometimes there is a little truth in a rumor that can lead you to breaking a brick wall.

If you'd like to contact the show, feel free to do so on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. Or if you like you can email me at

I'd love to share your family history, adoption or DNA stories and right now I'm looking for stories about food and family history! How do the two go together? Things your family may have eaten that could have been passed down for generations? Food ties us all together, we use it in so many ways to gather, I want to hear about your experiences. Reach out to me through the ways listed above or leave a voice message at the link below.
