Today’s Follow Friday is HistoryOrb.com, which has a great today-in-history archives containing more than 200,000 important events, famous and celebrity birthdays, and famous deaths from the past six thousand years. The archive is fully searchable, both by date and by keyword, via the today-in-history search engine.

It’s a great help with genealogical timeline composition and I like it especially because it has data for American, Asian, European, Latin American, New Zealand, and Russian history, as well as an Economic History section.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.
