Is there a good Genealogical software program that does timelines? I would also be interested in books that show good timelines of American, British or Danish history.
Rootsmagic will create timelines for individuals or for a group of individuals. Most major public libraries and university libraries will have several options of books that provide timelines. For American history, check the subject heading "United States--History--Chronology" in the online catalog. For other regions, change "United States" to the appropriate country such as "England" or "United Kingdom" for British.
You can create printable timelines for individuals online at: http://www.ourtimelines.com/create_tl_2c.html
I thought that was pretty cool.
In my free time I have been researching a 1920-21 strike at a Newport Kentucky steel mill. I am using TMG to keep track of the people and events involved and have made a timeline just for it. So far the program has done everything I hoped for. I can add events, put those events on the time line and note any people that attended the event. I think the feature was intended to help track who attended weddings and funerals, with the intention of making it easier to spot in-law and marriages of female family members but it works just as well with town meetings and other gatherings.
To be perfectly honest, I have no free time. The demands I have made on the program have been limited so far, the program is complicated, I have to dig to find out how to do what I want but there is always a way to do whatever I want to do. Once I master TMG I think it will be the most useful software I have ever purchased.
I don’t want to sound like a company shill. Family Origins was my genealogy software for over a decade and even though the company was gone the program did everything I needed for my family history. Once I went back to school for a degree in history is when TMG started feeling that I needed the all the features TMG offers.
