The Timeline Quickview shows:

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

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

  • date

  • name of people involved in event

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

You can then change Gramps Views, and select different people, and the view will change automatically.
