Genealogy Timeline and Family Timeline Maker Software U.S.A.

Using Genelines™ timeline software, you can create seven customizable timeline charts that display your family history records in a refreshingly different way.

Genelines timeline charts are created from two sources:

  • Your genealogy database, and
  • World events timeline files from our extensive library.
  • They can also be custom-made by you!

Use Timeline Charts to Tell Your Family History

By placing your family records against a backdrop of a world events timeline, you can tell fantastic family stories in a powerful visual way that is impossible using your genealogy database software alone. 

The historical context can put events in your ancestor’s life into context. Why did they choose to emigrate at that particular time in history? Why did your cousin move across the world and start a family there? All of these questions can be answered when using genealogy timelines.

Merging a familial and a historical timeline can enhance your family history in new ways. It gives you a big-picture view of your family in chronological order so you can take your ancestral quest to the next level.

Take a Genelines wall chart to your next family reunion and enjoy the excitement it generates!

Use Customizable Timeline Charts to Perfect Your Genealogy Research

Genelines timeline software does more than let you create colorful timeline charts. Unlike other programs, it is also a powerful family research tool. These timeline charts conveniently show where you have duplicate, illogical, or contradictory data or gaps requiring further research.

You know how difficult it is to complete and validate a file. Genelines timeline software can change all that. By comparing the lives of two or more people or showing who was alive when a significant event occurred, timeline charts can help you perfect your research and fully map your ancestor’s life.

Genelines reads many genealogy database programs directly and works with any database using the GEDCOM format.
