Historical Research: Creating a Timeline

When writing a book that covers a lot of events, I find it very helpful to make timeline. I am very blessed that my mom invested in a very awesome timeline set years ago, and I can still use it. But you don’t need fancy figures to make a good timeline. Here is a step by step guide on how to make your very own timeline.
What you Need
Some wall space
Computer with internet access
A printer
Some string or ribbon
Tape or paper clips

Step 1: Tack up the string or ribbon across the wall space you have.
Step 2: Print off the list of events/timeline figures you want
Step 3: Cut the events/figures apart
Step 4: Tape/clip them up in order on your timeline.

Here is a picture of how mine turned out:
