WorldHistory has just entered it’s private beta phase. The interesting interface allows users to pick a location on a map to see historical events that occurred there. You can even set a date range to see events that happened during those years. The program also allows you to enter your own ancestors and genealogy information to the site, say if you had an ancestor that fought in a historic battle.

The program, for the most part, accesses Wikipedia data in order to create the content. They also say they are hard at work on an iPhone version of the program that will show historical events that occurred near you at any given time.
