The chronology of ''Travels with Father'' is not clear. The original scripts for the two TV episodes, if they had been third season episodes were "Russia, March 1909" and "Athens, July 1910"<ref>[http://www.starwars.com/community/news/films/f20080407/index.html The Lost Chronicles of ''Young Indiana Jones'']</ref>. The film, with its bridging segment showing travel from the Moscow area to Athens, thus making the two adventures happen with Greece happening right after Russia.

The DVD of ''Travels with Father'' is labeled 1910 only, and is ordered before ''[[Journey of Radiance]]'', which is firmly established as starting in January 1910 (the timeframe of "Benares, January 1910"). If the disc order is significant to the timeline, then logically has all of ''Travels with Father'' fit within January 1910 as well. However, while it may have been possible to travel from Russia to Athens to Benares all in one month, the weather and dress depicted in Russia would be atypical for January (Moscow area traditionally has a daily high of 23 F in January), and workers would not be out in the fields at this time of year. However, a reference existing in the film still makes most sense if the film takes place in early 1909: Indiana Jones mentions his [[Christy Mathewson|favorite baseball player's]] statistics for 1908, and called them "last season".

The journal of the [[Interactive Timeline]] that accompanied the DVD sets places the adventure in Russia in August 1910, and the adventure in Greece as September 1910, but puts their entries before the entries for Benares (January 1910), and China (March 1910), to keep them in film order. However, the interactive timeline is known to contain the error listing the halves of ''[[Passion for Life]]'' as being September 1908 and September 1909, then listing the halves of ''[[The Perils of Cupid]]'' as also being September 1908 and September 1909, though the bridging segments don't support these as possible. The timeline included in ''[[Indiana Jones: The Ultimate Guide]]'' lists April/May for the adventures of ''Travels with Father'', and having the lecture tour conclude by August 1910.
