VGA Hangouts: Timelines – February 27, 2022

Creating timelines is such an effective technique for telling your ancestor’s stories, helping to resolve conflicting information, seeing patterns, connecting to events within the ancestor’s FAN Club (friends/family, associates, and neighbors), and so much more.

  • Spreadsheet
  • Index cards
  • Adding events to online tree/genealogy software

Cyndi’s List has a category on Timelines that you can use for inspiration and education:
