Many times in the Swedish Church Records, a minister recorded the date of an event according to the liturgical year (the church year) rather than the Julian or Gregorian date that we would recognize. In order to convert the Feast date to a Gregorian date, you have to use a Feast Day Conversion table. To convert a Moveable Feast Date that you see in a record to a Gregorian date choose the year that you are working in from the table below.
- The Swedish government began using the Gregorian calendar on February 18, 1753. Prior to that, they used the Julian calendar.
- 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.
