This site allows visitors to place individuals in their family tree in a
historical context, with timelines ranging from 1000 A.D. to the present. Events
are color-coded to reflect what type of information they represent (historical
event, leadership, technology event, disaster), and you can customize the
timeline by adding your own events as well.
Some items listed in the timeline
(underlined) also contain links to other Web pages with more information on the
historical event referenced. Each event lists the age of your ancestor at the
time of the event. This can be particularly helpful in determining if an
ancestor was of age to serve in the military during various conflicts, which
could lead to untapped military records.
