Basically, this is a very simple site. I spent approximately 30 minutes
clicking on different dates that were related to family member's birthdays,
anniversaries, etc. It was interesting to see what happened if anything in the
history of psychology on your birthday. A lot of information is provided. If
you were looking for something specific and had a general idea of when it
happended, you could easily find it.

Technical Remarks:

Very user-friendly. I had no problems using the site. Rather self-explanatory.
