11, 1731 and in some
early records his birth is shown as Feb. 11, 1731-32. How is THAT possible?
involves something that no one living has ever experienced and, hopefully
will not have to be concern about happening again: the world's calendar
was born Britain and her colonies, which at time spanned the globe, were
using the Julian calendar.This
calendar had been created by the Holy Roman Catholic Church and had been
in use since the days of Pope Julian. Unfortunately it did
earth revolves around the sun in a 365.25 day orbit.
Over a long
span of time it was noticed that the seasons of the year had got out of
sync with the calendar. When the problem became obvious the church
decided to take action. A new study was conducted that discovered the need
for dealing with the quarter day per year and a new calendar was developed.
The pope at the time was Gregory so the new calendar was called the Gregorian
calendar. But there was a problem. The seasons were still out of sync.
The solution was something that, most likely, can never be applied again.
Since it appeared that there was a 12 day difference between the start
of the seasons as noted on Julian calendar it was decided
to move the date ahead by 12 days. Britain created the Calendar (New Style)
implemented it on December 20, 1751. That was the last day of the
year under the old calendar. When the world awoke on what would have been
December 21, 1751 the new calendar was in effect and the date was January
1, 1752! This caused George Washington's Feb. 11th birthday to move to
to this site who do genealogical searches reaching back into years before
1750 need to keep this in mind. And those seeking information about 1751
need to know there are 12 "missing" days in that year. Oh,
by the way, this change in calendars also gave us the wonderful - now you
see it - now you don't - date of February 29.

space has room for several more links. And, as you can
see from our datebook, even that has a few sections with no
data. We wish we had more to share with you.
web site is now in its 11th year on line. Over these years
we've had a small but loyal number
of regular visitors and a number of visitors who have stopped
by occasionally. We'd like to be attracting a much large
of regular visitors.
been wondering if
some of our occasional visitors
may not be aware of everything that is available on this
site. So we created this article as a brief overview
of what's here and
it can be found.
PAGE The items on the home page mostly speak for
themselves. There are two items, however, that could use
a little explanation. The links and the menu bar.
throughout the home page are links that will take you from
the home page and onto other pages in this web site. These
links are printed in blue and
are underlined. Sometimes the link
will be the continuation of a home page article or, in
the case of the date book,
the link will take you to a profile page that lists a bit
more information about an individual - sometimes even including
their picture. All of these links appear in a window that "floats" above
the home page. The window has a close box allowing you
to close it and return to a full
view of the
located at the top of the home page just below the banner.
If you move your cursor over the items in the menu bar you
will see each respond by changing color. Each of these menu
bar items are sections of this web site. Each contains
information. We'll explain these sections a bit later in
this article. For now, you need to know two things about
these menu bar items. First, menu button for the section
you are viewing will have orange colored text and it will
click (since you are already on that page). For all the other
menu bar buttons, when the button changes color, you can
click it to be taken to that section of the web sit e..
of the main pages of the various sections display that
same banner as the home page and the menu bar so you can
freely move about the web site. The first page of a section
is a kind of home page for that section telling you the
kind of information found there and providing links to
allow you to access whatever you wish.
