Julian calendar to modern day dating
UK, England, Lancashire—Nonconformist Church Records, 1647–1996 [Part B][MSGD-8C1]
This is in the 1750s and so the Julian calendar is in effect. The instructions say to use the online calculator, but then it says "This would mean that the 3rd month in 1730 would be May. In the Gregorian calendar adopted in 1752, the 3rd month would be March. When indexing records for this project, please convert the Julian calendar dates to their Gregorian calendar equivalents." I am confused because the calculator does not give the modern month.
An example: Julian date: 2 / 22 =April 22 ---------Gregorian date: May 3 (using calculator)
However if you give it the modern dating it would be Feb 22.
So which do I use? Jane
