TimeToast Timeline--Jessica Pool VanGilder

Work has taken me away from my Olympic quest at the end of this week; however, today found me working on Expand Your Knowledge Task B: Create a timeline related to one of your lines of research. I hope to blog about my paternal great grandmother Jessica Pool VanGilder for the upcoming COG and a timeline of her life is a GREAT beginning. This was a BLAST to do! Who knew opportunities like this were FREE for genealogists. I will admit it did take me all morning to complete this task and it is almost 1:30 and I am still working on it. Here is the site of The Timeline for Jessica Pool VanGilder. For easier reading, click on the "View as list" under the timeline. As you can see, I have added numerous photographs, documents and newspaper articles. My count has only risen by 1 in the past several days; however, this event is one of the best I have done to date.

  1. I love the pattern that the dots on your timeline make. Sort of like dominoes or Braille.
