Expanded Historical Information for Existing Timeline EventsThird, you may have noticed that the entries in the timelines are, in some cases, not just text, but also a link to an expanded history page that describes the entry in some further detail.
It is our intention to eventually build a reference page for every entry in the timelines. We are adding more expanded pages each day. There are a large number of timeline entries, however, and we add more all the time, so this is simply a huge job. Initially, we're providing only very brief information, with the intention of expanding that information to some degree later.
If you would like to contribute a short article about a particular timeline entry, just write it up and send it to us using the form you'll find below, on this page.
Supply the entry text, the date(s), your e-mail address and your name. If you would like credit on the page provide the details for the credit only (IE, name and/or e-mail and/or web page) in the space provided on the firm below. We're very willing to provide detailed, linked credit for a history page.
Add the body of the text for the entry you are writing about, submit it to us, and you'll see it on the site very shortly.
You can write an article as long as 20k bytes, if you are so motivated - we have allocated a great deal of space for just this purpose.
Note that we will edit the article for spelling and grammar, as required. We'll also take care of the HTML formatting for you. If you want to embed your own formatting, that's ok too, though we do reserve the right to correct and edit it under some conditions. Note that absolutely no scripting or any other active technology will be used on these pages, as they can pose a serious risk to our visitors.
Very Important: Please try very hard to stay neutral and describe the event itself in a factual manner. The tone we want to take is similar to the ideal for news articles; report the information itself, and let the readers develop opinions on their own. If you stray into the realm of opinion in your writing, you're running the risk that we will edit it out.
Suggest someone for the Peer DatabaseFourth, the Peers and Contemporaries page allows site visitors to generate a list of people born in a specific year. This is another fine way to gain perspective on an ancestor. Our database has literally thousands of individuals in it, but we plan to add thousands more. We're delighted to take your suggestions.
Just fill out the form below, and shoot it to us - we'll do the rest.
