My MyHeritage 4-Generation Pedigree Chart Timeline

 MyHeritage announced their Timeline feature on Thursday in their RootsTech Keynote talk, and posted Introducing the Family Tree Timeline today.

I played around with it for a few minutes today and made a 4-generation pedigree chart:

You can save this as a PDF in a 100% Zoom view or a one-page view.  The above is a one-page view that I then saved as a PNG file using the Windows Snipping Tool.

Here is the 5-generation pedigree Timeline chart:

The colors, thumbnail photos, and additional information (ages at death and ages of parents at child's birth) are useful.

Another potential Timeline Chart might be to show parents, children and grandchildren in one chart.


Disclosure:  I receive a complimentary subscription to MyHeritage, and have received other material consideration in past years.  I uploaded my autosomal DNA raw data to their DNA product.  This does not affect my objective analysis of MyHeritage products.
