These books are set in the Uplift Universe, where each intelligent species was uplifted from pre-sentient (animal) intelligence to spacefaring level - since the days of the Progenitors. Except Humans, the wolflings of Earth, for whom no one has found the Patrons.
There are two supplements to the GURPS Universe: GURPS Uplift and Contacting Aliens. Both of them include timelines, and my calculations were useful in some of those information. Those dates are now canonical, and some of them are included here.
This timeline is far from complete. A complete timeline, with an overview of the Uplift Universe, can be found at Stewart Blandón's site. Stewart Blandón's timeline is based on GURPS Uplift, and there are some minor differences between the canon and GURPs Uplift.
Another Uplift Universe Encyclopedia, with much creative material, is Trent Shipley's Aliance for Progress Galactic Library pico-branch .
Like my other timelines, I have put some arrows to help the reader follow some characters. However, I decided to represent uncertainty by a color code, from green, representing a direct quote from the canon, to red, when the canon can only give an approximate date. Or: Error > 1000 Years, Error 100-999 Years, Error 10-99 Years, Error 1-9 Years, Exact Year.
2275 (probably earlier)
