FamilySearch Adds New Map and Time Line Features

FamilySearch recently launched a events details feature that allows you to see contextually the history of your ancestor in new ways.

The new features include a Time Line that includes historical events (if enabled), along with the details of your ancestor’s life.

It also features a map option that you may switch on that adds pins to a map of the life events of your ancestor along with where historical events near the area and time frame were located.

Any time you can view your family’s history in a few perspective, fresh discoveries are likely to be found. Play with it. There is room for improvement, but it’s a start in the right direction. Let me know what you think.
