A general knowledge of the historical era in which your ancestors lived is important in putting the circumstances of their life in context. This is where timelines -- chronological listings of historical events -- can offer an interesting perspective to your genealogy research. They can help to take you beyond names, dates and locations to the "big picture" - events, situations and surroundings which probably had some sort of impact on your ancestors.
