Fixed and Moveable Feast Days for: DenmarkEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
Back to Denmark►
Many times in the Danish 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 an 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: Denmark.
- The Danish Governmet 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).
