Timelines & research

What has always captivated me is the place in time at which events occur and their relation to each other. I started the Timeline of natural and cultural curiosities in 2020. But I am equally very much fascinated by doing research into family histories (genealogical research, structuring and visualising personal stories), and in particular their representation in time.
