How to Create Family Timelines Using Twile
Map out your ancestors' life and times with Twile, an online tool for making historical timelines.

Timelines are essential research tools for untangling same-named people, sorting out migration mysteries and writing about ancestors’ lives. They also let you tell an ancestors’ story in a visual, easily digestible way. Twile, an online timeline tool and 2016 winner at the RootsTech conference Innovator Showdown, combines all these purposes in an interactive, easy-to-use format. Unlike family timelines built on other genealogy websites, each Twile user’s timeline is private by default, accessible to friends and family by invitation. You must include relatives in your tree in order to invite them to view the timeline.

And Twile is now free to all users, so anyone can take advantage of formerly premium features such as unlimited tree size and sharing. Follow our guide to give Twile timelines a try.
