How do I delete my account?

How do I add an Event?
Click on Submit, you will need to be logged in if you want to be given credit for the event and be able to edit it at a future date.
What are Private Events?
Private events are events that only your friends will be able to see on their Today In History main pages, and anyone can see if they look up your profile. As important as your birth is to the world, not everyone would want to see it in their daily information. So, go ahead and add your major events, share them with your friends and invite them to do the same.
