91st Carnival of Genealogy, A Tribute to Women! The Time Line
I love time lines, I just don't do them. However, a challenge is a challenge and I usually cannot resist. So, I start with Google search and see what is out there in Net-Land. I found three sites that I tried. Two allowed me to do my own time lines via input of names and dates and such. The third one was much more detailed, it has a HUGE data base of events tied to dates which result in quite long reports. You can add your own dates and details to this one as well. I think this time line builder would be super if you could pick and choose some of the standard events. However, it is a large graphic if you need to cover a number of years, as in my case 1888 to 1954. That said, this third one really gives you a great feel for what went on during the years of your ancestor's life.
I built a web page for the three time lines over at my sister site, Reflections On Families Past. However, in 2015, it was discovered that Webs.com was not a satisfactory place to continue to store the time lines.
This page now has the links and images of the three time lines I built. They all are interesting, and have aspects I like about them. I most likely will not do another time line, but if I do, I think that I might use this one from Read Write Think at http://www.readwritethink.org/ . I can see good possibilities with this time line, as I can add more details, but it is still simple and clearly laid out.
* Thanks to Jasia at Creative Gene for hosting this 91st Carnival of Genealogy.
**If you have trouble remembering historical dates, that HUGE time line builder is for you, for informational purposes that one rules, as they say. Even if it is a bit overwhelming!
