In addition to her hundreds of heirloom returns, Brown has become a whistleblower in her field, breaking the stigma surrounding family drama, exposing the abhorrent world of underground artifacts, and giving her historical takes on pop culture trends and gossip. Join Chelsey as she shares the movie-esque stories behind the heirlooms she finds, discusses the scandal within the world of genealogy, gives her genealogical take on pop culture, and most importantly, uses these artifacts to travel back in time and connects us with raw moments in history.
