My idea for the timelines was to create lists of activities contemporaneous with the differing period of my family history:

Over the coming months I plan to create lists to itemise key events in the Highlands, Scotland and the UK which may have contributed to the formation of the social and economic environment my family has lived through. Initially this will focus on the the 18th and 19th Centuries, but with time will expand.

The lists are not intended to be extensive historical researches, and are often collections of interesting headlines from various books or other sources (which where possible I acknowledge). In time I hope to develop some of the detail where it has direct relevance to my researches.
