The founders of the International Association of StoryKeepers and the Treasury of Family Heritage family networking site launched the Great Heritage Campaign
March 31 to encourage families to preserve their traditions and stories.
Treasury of Family Heritage co-founder Dennis Stack calls the campaign “a call to action for members of the heritage industry to help bridge the disconnect between its various elements and to drive the movement in an interactive way.”
He adds that his site is a “key piece” of the campaign, serving as a platform where families and heritage-related businesses can connect and preserve stories.
To use the Treasury of Family Heritage, you set up a profile (choose from a family, business or social page), then upload video, audio, images or stories. Packages range from free to $15 per month, depending on storage size
In the crowded area of family networking/storykeeping sites (Geni
, to name just a few), genealogy sites with networking components (Footnote
, etc.), wikis (WeRelate
is one), and genealogy applications for general social networking sites (including FamilyBuilder’s Family Tree
and FamilyLink’s We’re Related
), will the Great Heritage Campaign direct attention to the Treasury of Family Heritage? We'll have to wait and see.
The Great Heritage Campaign doesn't seem to have its own Web site, but you can watch a video on the Treasury of Family Heritage site
