Is there any way I can read Marvel and DC comics in the order of the events that happen in their universes?

It's hard to get into Marvel's since they haven't done reboots so every thing they have published since are all canon, unlike dc who've done multiple reboots over the past. Here is a summary of DCs history I found.

gen 1 heroic age (golden age year 1 to year 18, post justice society year 19 to year 25)(25 years)(jay garrick gen): wonder woman starts -> justice society, dinah drake black canary starts (year 3), sgt rock (year 4), justice society in world war 2 (year 5), all star squadron (year 5), freedom fighters (year 5) -> dinah lance born (year 12) -> clack kent becomes superboy in secret (year 13) -> death of thomas and martha wayne (year 16) -> justice society disbands (year 18) -> martian manhunter arrives (year 19) -> challengers of the unknown (year 24).

gen 2 space age (silver age and bronze age)(15 years)(barry allen gen): start of superman and batman -> justice league vs starro, martian manhunter is founder (year 4), doom patrol (year 5) -> justice league justice society team up (crisis), teen titans start (year 6) -> supergirl starts, barry allen marries iris west (year 8) -> batgirl starts (year 11) -> new teen titans by marv wolfman and george perez, zatanna and firestorm join justice league -> shazam (captain marvel) starts -> crisis has death of supergirl and death of barry allen.
