Love Your Lineage is a multi-faceted, friendly, and shame-free approach to family history.

Our hosts, Michelle Franzoni Thorley and Miyamoto Loretta Jensen, help us see beyond finding missing names and show us how everyone, no matter what our background or family situation, can make deep and powerful connections to our ancestors.

This podcast is centered in the BIPOC family history experience, although we invite all to listen and find and claim their space.
