    I enjoyed Dr. Shelley Viola Murphy’s webinar. She is so friendly and it comes across listening to her. I felt like we were sharing a cup of tea and talking about genealogy. Also she is very easy to understand and speaks so clearly. I frequently cannot understand when some others are talking or miss some of their words. I will keep my eyes open for more of her webinars.

    This is one of the best, concise webinars I have watched (and I watch a lot). Even as an advanced researcher, I recommend EVERYONE watch this one to learn, to review, to remind!!!

    Excellent and easy-to-use timeline format! Very helpful – I’ve used a variation for some years, and I will need to modify mine to include another column!! Much appreciated.

    When I reach that brick wall, I must resort to doing timelines. It always pays off with my journey.

    Most of the time when you go looking for ‘timelines’ forms, you will see a line with the years noted and big events noted, wars, census, royalty, etc. What se just explained is more of a chronology, it allow the placement of all types of events for the family, the community, state and the world. It shows the ‘gaps’ and tells the story. I always include the whole family’s BDM as they can often explain what I call the ‘temperature’ of the family and their movements.

    i have never used a time line, but think i should, i’ve been doing research since 1970 and have 8- 3 ring binders full of names, dates, places etc, but still need info on several of the names in the books.
