Adding Timelines to your Genealogy Tool Kit
Timelines let us place individuals and families in history, track their movements, and look at historical events that may have impacted them. Timelines are particularly useful when setting people in history. By graphically laying out an individual's life, it is easy to see the holes in one’s research and determine where additional research should be concentrated. Bring a pencil, family group sheets (at least a small selection of a contiguous family) and your thinking cap. You will be given other supplies and information to help you develop a sample timeline.
Nancy Huebotter, a nationally recognized lecturer on genealogy topics, has spent over 35 years researching her family history. Along with her parents, Nancy researched, wrote, and published Ancestors and Descendants of Thomas Carroll and Ellis Miller, a 395-year history of her mother's lines. She is currently writing her father's biography, especially highlighting his military service and subsequent imprisonment in a German POW camp during World War II. By profession, Nancy has had a 35-year career with Raytheon Company (formerly Hughes Aircraft Company), where she is a senior technical writer and instructor.
