Calendar Codes Used

This is the short version. See the long version at this link.

These are the calendar codes used on this website. The codes below that you see by the birthdates by are dates that correspond to the calendar whence the date came.

Also note that the Datebook is of no calendar style. The birthdates may come from any combination of calendar styles used.

Here's a partial glossary of the terms used for some of the websites:

U.S. = unknown calendar style. We don't know what calendar the date was sourced from.

N.S. = Gregorian Calendar aka Gregorian-1 or Gregorian-Christ-1. This is the current calendar used in most countries worldwide. Some cities use this calendar, but celebrate New Year's Day on March 25.

NS-LD = a version of the Gregorian Calendar where in the cities of Pisa, Tuscany and Florence, Italy, the new year day is celebrated on March 25 but also celebrated on January 1. We're not sure if the actual number change day is still January 1, or if the number change day occurs early or late in relation to the number change day on the Gregorian Calendar. (also N.S.-LD)

O.S. = Unspecified Old Julian Calendar Style. We don't know which day on the calendar was used for advancing the year by one. It's often referred to the Julian Calendar where New Year's Day was celebrated on March 25, but here in the Datebook, it's too vague and may refer to a Calendar where New Year's Day may fall on January 1 or any popular date.

J+CD = Julian Number Change Day December 25 in year before Ju-1

Hbrw = Hebrew Calendar (uses special month code method)

Ju-1 = Julian Number Change Day January 1

J-LD = Julian Number Change Day March 25 in same year as Ju-1. This version is also known as Julian Annunciation Style, but Julian Lady Day uses fewer syllables.

Ju-3 = Julian Number Change Day March 1 in same year as Ju-1

Ju+9 = Julian Number Change Day September 1 in year before Ju-1

NS-W = Gregorian calendar west of the UTC but east of the IDL (International Date Line). This and the NS-E code below are used for parts of the world where the land sits near the IDL, which is subject to be moved back and forth of the mass of land, resulting in either a double date or a skipped date depending on direction. This comes in handy if you're traveling North or South and cross a the IDL where the line is horizontal (on a lattitude) resulting in advancing your calendar ahead one day (losing a day) or back one day (gaining a day). (also N.S.-W)

NS-E = Gregorian calendar east of the UTC but west of the IDL (International Date Line) (also N.S.-E)

Furthermore, the "-W" and the "-E" may be appended to the codes of any other calendar version used if the land masses fall near the IDL.

J-Sw = Julian-Sweden Calendar 1700-1712 A.D. This was a failed attempt to gradually change from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar which ended on a special February 30, 1712 date (maps to March 11, 1712 Gregorian calendar date or February 29, 1711/12, Julian-LD/Julian-1 dates) before resuming with the Julian calendar date of March 1 (March 12 Gregorian). You can see how confusing that 12-year era was!

Romn = Date on the Roman Calendar (in relation to the beginning of the month translated from the Kalends countdown format) 753 through 46 B.C.
