More queries about Middlesex Burials and Gregorian Calendar
This is the first time I've indexed records that are prior to a country changing to the Gregorian calendar, so I'm a bit confused. The Field Help (purple question marks) examples show the dates are indexed "as written", but the Project Instructions state to convert Julian calendar dates to Gregorian calendar equivalents. A Conversion Table can be viewed but it totally bamboozles me! Am I missing something here? Am I correct in thinking that England changed to the Gregorian calendar in 1752?
The record I am indexing starts at Nov 1710 and proceeds through Dec 1710 to become Jan 1710, and then changes to 1711 around Mar 26 when I checked out the Reference Images.
Do I index "what is written", or do I need to convert the dates?
I have seen a discussion about this topic in this forum before, but am unsure if it was resolved either way.
Looking forward to your thoughts!
