|Welcome to our site, which we hope will give you a rich and interesting experience in discovering timelines on various subjects during all registered history.|
|You may display timelines, based on a variety of criteria. Fill the fields that you want to use to specify your timeline and leave the others blank. When you are done, just press the Create timeline button.|
|Here is the explanation of the fields you may use as criteria:|
|Optional title||This is optional. You may enter an appropriate title, which will be displayed at the top of the timeline. If you do not fill this field, the title will appear just like "Timeline 1" or "Timeline 2."|
|Containing words||Enter one or more words, without any
commas or other special signs between them (example: war peace). All
events containing one or more of these words will be included in the
You may use special characters to make the search for events more restrictive.
Restriction: only words of four letters or more are used in the search. Any shorter words will be ignored.
|Dates between||If you leave these fields blank, all
events for the other criteria will be displayed, regardless of their
dates. You may specify however a start date and/or a end date for the
events to be included. If no end date is specified, then only events
including and after the start date are displayed. If no start date is
specified, then all events up to and including the end date are displayed.
All dates must be expressed in the form Month dd yyyy. The month may be reduced to the first three characters. Thus, you may enter January 1 2001 or Jan 1 2001.
|Referring to subject||If you know the name of a particular subject, you may enter it here. This is generally true of countries, but we obviously do not have all possible subjects in our database. You may search for available subjects by entering the first letters of the subject name and pressing the Search subject button. This will display a list of subject starting with those letters. You may click on one of these subjects to use it as a criteria.|
|This day in history||You may enter a date in the year, in the format Month dd (for instance Jan 21). Only events with this date will be displayed. Please be aware that this is a very restrictive condition and if combined with other conditions it may result in an empty timeline.|
