Not criticizing, just asking 'cause I'm interested... what is the evidence that Tiffany was born in 1979 UC? Okay, she was 16 during I Shall Wear Midnight, and her age is given in her other books as well; but what is the contemporaneous event that links her to the rest of the discworld timeline?

Discworld Timeline currently says Snuff in 1996 (I favor 1995, but close}. This seems to be shortly after Tiffany's visit to A-M. 1995 - 16 = 1979. The proximity to Snuff may be debatable and the dates can always be off by months. I think there were clues earlier too, but I don't remember. If you can come up with better evidence, great. --Old Dickens (talk) 01:37, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
Ah, got it. I had seen this wiki's timeline, but somehow I missed the link to the original lspace version, which includes all sorts of details and cross-references. And your logic here is right-on, I think. The A-M visit (one with no goblins or railroads involved) is a clear link.Moishe Rosenbaum (talk) 14:00, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
