Here is your assignment if you choose to play along (cue the Mission Impossible music, please!):
1) Have you created a Timeline for one of your ancestors using a genealogy software program (e.g., Family Tree Maker, RootsMagic, Legacy, Reunion, etc.) or an online family Tree (e.g., Ancestry Member Tree, FamilySearch Family Tree, Geni, MyHeritage, etc.), or in a spreadsheet (e.g., Excel)?
2) If not, try to create a timeline using the program/website of your choice. If so, create another one for the ancestor of your choice!
3) Show us your Timeline creation, and tell us how you did it. Which program/website, the process you used, and how you captured the images to display your timeline.
4) Share your Timeline creation on your own blog post, in a comment to this post, or on Facebook or Google+.
The "Timeline View" for a person has columns for "Age," "Facts," "Date," "Details," "place" and icons for Notes, Sources, and Media (the green check marks) The "Timeline View" added the immediate family members (parents, siblings, spouses, children) to the list without my having to request it (you can select the options in the "Options" button on the "Timeline View" menu). I really like this view, but, other than using a screen capture like above, I could not find a way to print out this list in color
The second option to produce a Timeline is to use the Reports menu > Lists item > Timeline (chronology) item, and select "Individual Timeline list," select a person from the "Select others to include in timeline," select the person, and then create a group by using "Mark group" and picking "Family of highlighted person" (which adds parents, siblings, spouses and children events).
Here are the two pages for the Timeline:
I also requested "Sources" in an Endnote format:
