A new timeline creator

A few months ago I experimented with an online timeline application called xtimeline that I used to create a timeline for Dr N B Kennedy’s Civil War service. It created a pretty good timeline, nothing fancy, though.

Yesterday I read about another timeline application, timetoast. It is also free, so I signed up for an account. This evening, I created a very simple timeline depicting the life of my Mom, just to see how timetoast worked. I am impressed!

About Timetoast

Timetoast allows people to create interactive timelines, which they can share anywhere on the web. Anyone can join Timetoast and start creating and sharing their own timelines, all they need is a valid email address. It’s completely free!

Timetoast was created with Adobe Flash, Adobe Flex and Ruby on Rails; without them this website probably wouldn’t exist. We also used some of the delightfully tasty icons provided by Sweetie and FamFamFam.

This will make a very handy addition to my genealogical toolbox!
