The website says:
"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."
The site is free to use. However, if you use their timelines in your web page or a publication, you need to attribute the information to them and put their copyright notice on your product.
At the bottom of the home page is a link to the "Create a Timeline" page at http://www.ourtimelines.com/create_tl_2c.html (two screens):
The user can save the web page as an .htm file, although my system warns that it might not save correctly (it looks just like the above to me). The user can copy and paste the timeline into a word document, although the user might have to adjust the page setup and the table lines to make it look acceptable. The timeline is editable in a word processor also. It's not as "good looking" as the saved HTML file!
