Dates must be entered in the input format defined in Preferences. The example dates which follow are in the DD-MMM-YYYY format, with a "-" separator and no leading zeros.
The following dates are valid:
Where part of the date is unknown simply omit the unknown part. Note that the year may not be omitted:
The standard GEDCOM date modifiers may be used to indicate About, Before, After and Estimated. You can change the strings used (eg. ABT) in Options | Preferences | Dates.
A phrase may be entered in place of a date by placing an apostrophe before the text. Note that phrases are not used in date calculations, sorting, etc.
The day and month descriptions (January, Sunday, etc) can be non-English if the Month names and Weekday names are changed in Preferences.
Dates should correspond to the Julian/Gregorian calendar currently selected. For example the date 29 Feb 1700 can be entered in the UK because this was a leap year in the Julian calendar and the Gregorian calendar was not adopted until 1752. However, from the point of view of someone in Italy this day would be 11 Mar 1700, where the Gregorian calendar was adopted in 1582. In Italy 29 Feb 1700 would be invalid since this was not a leap year in the Gregorian calendar. You should select the correct Gregorian adoption date in Preferences for the dates you are going to enter.
