How can I delete historical events from my personal timeline? Are there others to include?
I was born in Chicago and grew up in the mid-west. Ogden City is referenced in four of the historical events listed. The opening and closing of the Ogden City Mall and the Osmond Family moving to Ogden are two of them. I have never lived in Odgen, but two of my adopted children were born in Ogden.
I would like a broader view of historical events reflective of the places or larger communities in which I have lived. In my ideal world, I could choose historical events that even reflect some of my values. For example: My mother was an opera singer. I would prefer an event about classical music.
When there are major national or world events happening -- a city mall seems quite boring and stale. What purpose does that information serve to increase interest in my life and times?
And another problematic event for me included these words: "Department of Education was organized to guide the schools throughout the United States in what to teach and how to teach it. The Department also collects data on the schools to see where government focus needs to go." Regardless of public, private, or homeschool education choices, this is not reflective of the "history" of a place.
History should not be defined simply by current fads, current debates, political events, or sports.
I love FamilySearch. I think the idea of Historical events is really great and has incredible potential. But the Ogden City Mall holds no charm for a Chicago girl.
