Time dependent data

Hi!

 

I am making a historic map and am in need on best practice input / ideas on handling time related data. For example building features that change attributes like name or usage over time.

 

My solution is very cumbersome, where I have a finite number of fields for for example the name. Can I do this in  a more clever way then this:

 

FeatureName1

FeatureName1YEarFROM

FeatureName1YearTO

FeatureName1Source

 

FeatureName2

FeatureName2YEarFROM

FeatureName2YearTO

FeatureName2Source

 

etc etc

 

Problems with this solution:

- Highly inflexible and slow. 

- Makes unnecessary big database.

- Can only tell ArcGIS Pro to use YearTO and YearFROM in one field for time function.

 

Can anyone point me in the right direction on this one?
