Other Timeline Options

Since MyHistro has been such a disappointment, I’ve been on the hunt for other options and may have found a user-friendly free option to replace MyHistro. It’s called TimeGlide, and it offers free accounts for students. Here’s the link if you’re interested: https://timeglider.com/how_it_works
