Create a Personal Timeline


Mapping your life is the next step in our challenge. Creating a timeline when researching ancestors is an important tool when putting together a record of your own life.

Now we are going to use that same tool for our own lives.  We don’t remember events chronologically, but having a framework to organize and organize our stories will make things easier as we add events.

There are lots of online sites that make timelines for you, a website with links to 19 such sites can be found here. You can make your own as elaborate or as simple as you want using Excel or Word. Download a free timeline here.
