Downloading and Using the Family Tree Timeline
The free Family Tree Timeline is available by clicking the link at the bottom of this page.
The next step will be to start entering your information in the “Data Table” tab at the bottom of your screen.
Let’s run through an example with this page so you know how to use it. The data table is actually pretty simple. First, know that all the information you enter into the page will be relayed to the other tab as well.
Start by entering the year of a major event in your family’s history. Maybe your ancestors first came to the country in 1852 from Ireland. You would start by entering that year into the first column of the template.
The next step would be to enter the month and day, if you have that information. You would then give a brief description of the event. Finally, you would enter the height, which is where you want the item to appear on the timeline in the next tab.
When you finish filling out the entirety of your family history, click the “Chart” tab to see it all unfold before your very eyes! Watch as history comes alive with this free template.
