Producing a Timeline of events for a place

Post by HampshireLass » 13 Jan 2022 16:40

Forgive me if I have missed any topics on this, I have looked, but couldn't find an answer after a quick search.

All of my Family back beyond my Grandparents lived almost exclusively in Hampshire, England, and in a small number of villages.

I know that I have a knotty tree. I would like to be able to produce individual timelines for several villages showing all the Family events that took place there across all of my Ancestors, primarily BMD, Baptism and burial, and census records.

Is this possible please?

If so, can you point me to any references that already exist for this that I have missed, or, tell me in VERY SIMPLE terms how I can produce such a timeline.

Thank you

There is a Knowledge Base article on timelines here https://fhug.org.uk/kb/download/timelin ... -overview/ - don't know if this is what you are looking for?

Thank you for your reply.

This topic seems to refer to individuals, and the different reports that can be produced for them, whereas I am concerned with producing a report of a timeline of events for a Place, that includes all my Ancestors and their events associated with them, in that place. I am using V.7

That is fairly easy to do with a Fact query and filter it on the placenames you want.

A good starting point is the Events near place, which is a standard query, which you can copy and customise.

Thank you, I have manage to produce what I wanted with your instruction.

I didn't think to look directly in Queries. I was concentrating on Maps and Publish but hadn't followed through to Queries from there.
