  • Curious about what was happening in the world on the day you or an ancestor were born? Just enter the appropriate dates and you will learn just that!
  • Over the years, decades and centuries, events happened that determined where people lived, what they did to support their family, and even if they were able to attend school. Using Ask will aid you in learning about the events that occured during the life time of an ancestor.
  • Becoming an expert can be a challenge in any subject, however, with a little bit of research and reading you can be the expert on the locations where your ancestral families lived by using Wikipedia. Each article will have a section on "history" of the location. It is very important to read it as you may learn about borders changing and many other interesting facts. 
  • Timelines are a great way to organize and see the bigger picture in a person's life time and it helps to make sure you haven't missed a major event in their life.
