Many times in the Norwegian 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.
- 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). Do not use this conversion table for Swedish or Finnish research between 1700 and 1753.
