We are pleased to offer you one of the neatest family enhancements to come along in a long time:
It's so easy, anyone can do it... It's so cool, everyone wants to!
This web site generates truly fascinating personalized web pages for you. They show how your life (or the life of anyone else you choose — for instance, your descendants and ancestors) fits into history as we know it.
You can generate as many timelines as you like. If you're into creating web pages, you can even take the timelines we generate for you here and put them on your own pages - an unmatched personal touch everyone will enjoy.
In addition, you can insert up to ten custom, color-coded personal time segments (events or ranges) in a time line. These might include schooling, marriages, job assignments, military service and so forth.
Custom Peer/Contemporary Searches:
We also offer the ability to generate a list of "peers", or "contemporaries" on our My Peers page. This provides you with a list of notable individuals who were born the same year as the person you're interested in. This is another fine way to gain perspective about a family member. The database for this function has thousands of individuals in it, and we are adding more all the time. We also take suggestions!
For Genealogists, these capabilities are a veritable gold mine - you can actually see how a family member fits into history, and that not only helps users of your genealogical efforts to know these people a lot better, it helps you to better direct your research.
For families, the site is a wonderful tool to use to enlighten your children as to what went on in your lifetime, or another relative's lifetime. You'll understand this as soon as you try our exciting features. Just take a look at the timelines and peer groups we make for you and think about talking to your kids about those events and people. You'll see exactly what we mean!
