I have included not only family events but also other events that I think would have made an impact on Sarah Ann's life. Undoubtedly there are many other events I might have included and possibly a few I missed.


Thanks for the poster fM!

Good example for the rest of us.

Time lines are always necessry, whether just a simple one quickly scrawled on paper or like you have done. I was wondering how, I think this is good for me to try. It's better than my rolladex index cards taped to the back of big tall shelf!
Love your pictures.

Joan said...

Great timeline. I like the color coding, which makes it much easier to scan when going back over the timeline to look for specific items. I will keep that in mind.

Judith Richards Shubert said...

Very nicely done! I agree, it's a good example for the rest of us. Is there a rhyme or reason to the colors?

Apple said...

I can;t believe I didn't put in a color code key!

The dark pink/purple were items directly related to Sarah Ann. The items a shade lighter referred to her children and grandchildren.

The dark beige were entries for her parents and the light beige, her siblings.

The dark green were events that I know had an impact on her life, while the light green might have.

The blue items were inventions that I thought would have had an impact on her life. There should have been many more blue items!
