Timelines are a great tool for pulling together your genealogy information.  You can use them to sort your data by dates or places.  You can compare them to other timelines of local area history or world history to see what was going on in the world around your ancestor.  It is also a great tool to see where you may have gaps in your research.  Come and learn how to setup a timeline and see what a powerful tool it can be!
