Description

What if you uncovered something from your family's past that could alter the course of your entire life? These are the stories of people from all over the world whose lives were changed forever by what they found in their family history. Follow along as they are transported to far-flung corners of the globe and beyond the recesses of living memory to explore the truth about who they are — whether it's solving an old family mystery, reuniting with relatives they never knew existed, or forging a healing connection to a long-forgotten legacy. Presented by MyHeritage, the Blast From My Past podcast reveals the powerful ways our roots call across space and time to summon us home.
