In Genealogy Research beware March 25, 1752!

Experienced Genealogy researchers are aware of the jumble around the year 1752 for that is when Britain switched from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar. March 25th was the traditional date when a new year began in Britain and it factors in when attempting to research documented dates which are not necessarily corroborated with a stated date. To manage the Old Style (OS) to New Style (NS) change 72 days went missing!

Now before I jumble things up worse than this, why not check out The Amazing 80% Year of 1752 for more particulars!
