Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission: Impossible! music) is:
(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.), an online family tree (e.g., Ancestry Member Tree, FamilySearch Family Tree, Geni, MyHeritage, etc.), or a spreadsheet (e.g., Excel)?
(2) If not, try to create a timeline using the program/Web site 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/Web site, 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+.
1 and 2. I have created a timeline before. In fact, Randy used this idea in 2016, and I posted a timeline then. In addition, the program I use, Family Tree Maker, automatically creates a timeline with the facts that you enter about each individual. I created the timeline I'm posting tonight specifically for this exercise.
3. I use Family Tree Maker v. 16. I created a Genealogy Report that included all the facts I had for my great-grandfather Thomas Kirkland Gauntt. I exported the information in an RTF file, then added additional facts and edited the file in MS Word. I copied and pasted the text from Word directly into this blog post. I have found that makes it easier to read, as opposed to doing a screen capture. As Randy commented, it's pretty plain, but the benefit of exporting the file and opening it in a word processor is that I can add as much information as I want to it.
