ONLINE-Using Timelines for Analysis and Correlations by Jill Morelli, CG, CGL, March 14, 2024 7:00 PM (Central)

I love timelines and tables! They correlate the evidence revealing gaps and overlaps. A timeline of the life of an ancestor can tell us about their movements, their relationships, and their life choices. If we look at the changes in a family, the progression of events becomes understandable. It is the only way one can analyze the pre-1850 censuses, the “tick mark censuses,” where only the head of the household is named. Explore the different ways you can learn more about your family by using timelines and tables.
