We’re happy to introduce TOTA.world, a new GeneaBloggers Member Vendor.
TOTA– The Traditions of the Ancestors – is both a library and resource hub for vetted cultural information and a community of individuals and institutions that want to explore the rich diversity of world cultures.
In addition to gaining context of our ancestors’ beliefs, traditions, and cultural environment, family historians can add their own experiences and family stories on TOTA.
Believing that TOTA’s features dovetails with GeneaBloggers goals, Pam Looper, Director of Sales & Marketing at Traditions of the Ancestors, says she hopes that GeneaBloggers will become early adopters of TOTA.
To accomplish that, TOTA is offering Geneabloggers’ Premium members free lifetime access to premium level subscription level features.
TOTA’s membership gives members “access to a user-friendly, searchable database that features thousands of articles, videos, interactive maps/graphics, and TOTA-certified content generated by [TOTA’s] cultural partners.”
In addition, “Members will be able to establish cultural or family groups, discover their heritage, and connect with people who share goals for cultural learning and engagement.
How TOTA can help GeneaBloggers
As members, GeneaBloggers have access to great resources for cultural history and context. Bloggers can add their own voices as expertise to the platform and generate additional visibility for their blogs.
“Bloggers can showcase their expertise and start discussions by forming groups, which can help amplify their reach,” explains Looper.
Examples of how a group would look and function include Legacy Tree Genealogists’ “Genealogy Research” Group and Treasure Chest of Memories’ “Family Storytelling” Group. You can also name your group after your blog.
We’re happy to have TOTA among our partners!
