Introduction

A timeline is a chronological list of events for a person, family, or location.  This is helpful for analyzing events in a family by showing gaps in knowledge about a family or events that probably did not or could not happen for this family. Matching a family timeline with a location timeline can help determine the likelihood of a family's involvement in the events of a locality, such as wars,

Before creating a timeline

Gather family group records for the family in question and look at timelines for the locality.  A family group record is a great source for the family events, even if the record if not complete.
