... so anyway, there must be information in the standard biographies. Just what kind of software did Dickens use? or Tolstoy?

Let's say I have my character John Doe, born 1959. I want to see he's 27 in 1986 when Challenger explodes. And I want to see that his son Jim Doe, born in 1982, is 4 years old then. And should I come to the conclusion (for whatever reason) that this is too young for Jim Doe, I want to grab a handle and move the timeline in order that he is, let's say, 10 years old at the time of the disaster, which creates a character with different experiences. And then I would see that his father was only 17 when he was born, which might tell a story of it's own or has to be changed if needed. And so on...
