GenFriends: Traditions of the Ancestors (TOTA) with Michael Felts

Cheri and the panel Dan Earl, Laura Hedgecock, and Mary Kircher Roddy welcome guest Micheal Felts, the founder of the TOTA project. We learn how this website can help us research and learn about the historical and cultural context influencing our ancestors.
Tabs link to cultures and topics. A search bar helps to narrow down a subject.
We explore parts of the website and discuss the importance of having a place to keep all types of archival items publically and privately and the process of how articles are vetted and certified to make sure content is safe and reliable.

As an example of the articles found Cheri shared some she had discovered:
-French Woman and Home LIfe
-Captain Hook in Tahiti
-Children's Dress in Colonial Days
-Video-African American Spirituals of the Civil War
-Gusirucak Sketches of the Cherokee
-Passover Dishes 1895

Something for all cultures and time periods to help you fill in the story of your family.

Watch as we learn about this free site helping to tell and preserve the traditions of our ancestors.
