Fixed and Moveable Feast Days for NorwayEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
Many times in the Norwegian Church Records, a minister recorded the date of an event by the name of the Fixed or Moveable Feast Day which is based on the liturgical year (the church year) rather than the Julian or Gregorian date that we would recognize. To convert a Fixed Feast Day that you see in a record to a Julian or Gregorian date, choose the letter (for an alphabetical search) or the month (for a chronological search) for the feast day you are interested in. To convert a Moveable Feast day, see the Moveable Feast Day Calendar for Norway.
- The Norwegian Government used the Julian calendar up until February 18, 1700. They began using the Gregorian calendar in Norway on March 1, 1700 (a difference of 11 days).
