Many times in the Swedish Church Records, a minister recorded the date of an event using a Fixed or Moveable Feast Date based on the liturgical year (the church year) rather than the Julian or Gregorian date that we would recognize. To convert a Fixed Feast Date that you see in a record to a Julian or Gregorian date, choose the letter (for a alphabetical search) or the month (for a chronological search) for the feast date you are interested in. To convert a Moveable Feast date, see the [[Moveable Feast Day Calendar for: Sweden|Moveable Feast Day Calendar for: Sweden]].<br>

Back to Sweden

Many times in the Swedish 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 a 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: Sweden.

Tips:

  • The Swedish government began using the Gregorian calendar on February 18, 1753. Prior to that, they used the Julian calendar. Do not use this conversion table for Danish or Nowegian research between 1700 and 1753.
  • Between February 29, 1700 (Julian) and February 29, 1712 (Julian), the Swedish government used its own "Swedish Calendar". As part of the transition from the Swedish Calendar back to the Julian calendar in 1712, the month of February in 1712 has 30 days.
