The Timeline Quickview shows:

  • all of the events of a person's life
  • birth events of parents

These events are sorted by date, and shows the age of the center person. In total, the columns shown for each event are:

  • date

You can activate the Timeline Quickview by right-clicking on a person's name in the People View, and selecting "Quick View", and "Timeline".
