CE50 Company Twile Celebrate Independence Day

Family history timeline Twile released a brand new feature this week to celebrate Independence Day in the US.


Twile’s infographic, designed to help family historians share their research and engage younger generations, is now available in red, white and blue, with the American stars and stripes. The personalised family infographic is free and available to everyone – whether currently using Twile or not – at https://twile.com/numbers/american.

Visitors can simply import their FamilySearch tree or upload a GEDCOM file to automatically generate their infographic. Designed for sharing online and with family, Twile’s infographic includes statistics such as the average number of children per family, the most common surnames, the ratio of men to women and the average age of marriage. Now available in the colours of Ireland, England and America, users can create a digital version or order a print. In addition to the new infographic, Twile’s timeline of the American Revolutionary War is available at https://twile.com/timeline/americanrevolutionarywa...

The timeline shows the story of the American Revolution and Twile users can also overlay the timeline onto their own family history timelines, to see the lives of their ancestors in the context of what was happening in the country around them. Users will be able to see their ancestors’ milestones alongside events such as the Boston Tea Party and the first Independence Day Celebration in 1777.
