A sophisticated understanding of the past is one of the most powerful tools we have for shaping the future.
The past provides an insight into the present. The present, gets its sense from the background of comparable events to which it belongs….Discovering or rediscovering the story, picking up the thread, reminding ourselves where we stand, where we have been and where we are going—these are as important for groups as for individuals.
Historical timeline allows viewers to get an overview of the major events of your history in a much shorter amount of time than searching into the archives. Links will take researchers to specific parts of your database, where they can navigate up and down the hierarchical structure and across the database to other related material.
A good historical timeline has many advantages:
- Provides a quick overview of key events from your long history
- Publishes to the internet where Google and other search engines find it
- Uses images and text already in your database to create the timeline
- Re-publishes easily with a few clicks of the mouse
- Links back into the live database for more related detail
