Back to Denmark Page►
Many times in the Danish Church Records, a minister recorded the date of an event by the name of the Fixed or Moveable Feast Date which is based on the liturgical year (the church year) rather than the Julian or Gregorian date that we would recognize. To convert a Moveable Feast Day that you see in a record to a Julian or Gregorian date, choose the year that you are working in from the table below.
Another great tool for calculating a moveable feast day is the book Calender for Aarene fra 601 til 2200 efter Christi Fødsel by R. W. Bauer. The following link is a guide for how to use the book: Bauers Calender
- The Danish Government used the Julian calendar up until February 18, 1700.They began using the Gregorian calendar in Denmark on March 1, 1700 (a difference of 11 days). Do not use this conversion table for Swedish or Finnish research between 1700 and 1753.
