Family history timeline Twile have today released a brand new feature to celebrate Independence Day in the US.
Twile’s infographic, designed to help family historians share their research and engage younger generations, is now available in red, white and blue, with the American stars and stripes.
The personalised family infographic is free and available to everyone – whether currently using Twile or not – at https://twile.com/numbers/american.Visitors can simply import their FamilySearch tree or upload a GEDCOM file to automatically generate their infographic.
Designed for sharing online and with family, Twile’s infographic includes statistics such as the average number of children per family, the most common surnames, the ratio of men to women and the average age of marriage. Now available in the colours of Ireland, England and America, users can create a digital version or order a print.
In addition to the new infographic, Twile’s timeline of the American Revolutionary War is available at https://twile.com/timeline/americanrevolutionarywar. The timeline shows the story of the American Revolution and Twile users can also overlay the timeline onto their own family history timelines, to see the lives of their ancestors in the context of what was happening in the country around them. Users will be able to see their ancestors’ milestones alongside events such as the Boston Tea Party and the first Independence Day Celebration in 1777.
Twile is a UK-based interactive timeline of your life, your family and the world around you. The timeline consists of photos and milestones – such as births, marriages, and deaths – that tell the story of your family from your earliest known ancestor right through to today. Family historians can import their family tree from any online genealogy service and then add more recent events from their own life before inviting family members to explore and contribute.
While the Twile website is aimed primarily at family historians, it is also designed to encourage the rest of the family to add their own content, including the younger generations. Twile was the winner of two innovation awards at RootsTech 2016, including People’s Choice. Partnered with Findmypast and FamilySearch Certified, they were also recently announced as one of Creative England’s CE50 companies for 2017.
