TNG Genealogy is a powerful PHP and MySQL based application that displays family trees, it has lots of built in features. However, one of the good things about it is that a large community that writes various add-ons or mods as they are called, to enhance its functionality.
TNG has a timeline feature that can show notable events that happened during the life of a person in the family tree. I forget where I obtained this list of events, but I’ve edited and improved this list with predominately UK specific events.
Download the tng_timelineevents.txt file below. Change the file extension from .txt to .bak, then FTP to your TNG backup folder. Then do a restore of the Timeline Events table with the Admin > Utilities > Tables > Backup, Restore & Optimise function. (this will wipe any existing timeline you may have)by
