I have been reviewing the pre-1752 Lancashire Non-Conformist Registers. I am concerned that none of the ones I have been working on have changed the dating to the Gregorian Calendar. Should the reviewers make these changes, or should they be sent back for reindexing? What will happen to the registers where this change was not made and were submitted.
- England adopted the Gregorian calendar in 1752. Prior to 1752 in England, the year on the Julian calendar began in March and continued to the next February. 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. Click here for help converting dates.
