Timeline Notes

Date based on her entering Hogwarts in 1947, which is based on her birth year, which in turn is based on her statement to Umbridge in OP15 that she'd been teaching at Hogwarts for 39 years. Rowling's writing on Pottermore provides the amount of time between when she left school to when she began teaching.
