Timeline of Events


Timeline of major events mentioned in Joseph Smith’s papers. Events include major journeys and migrations, births and deaths of Joseph Smith’s children, selected revelations, essential developments in ecclesiastical organization, and other significant incidents. Future releases will expand the list of events.

For more information about an event, click on the event name. Move the “handles” on the blue bar to see a larger or smaller time span. To zoom in to a month-by-month view, move both handles inside a single year span. You can also use the arrows on the left and right side of the bar to move through the timeline. Note that choosing a smaller time span will allow you to see more events. You can also use your mouse wheel to zoom in and out. Hover over an event and roll up once to zoom to a month-by-month view and again for a day-by-day view. Roll down to zoom out.
