On Thursday, July 9, 2015 at 7:30 pm, the East Windsor, Beth El Synagogue Genealogy Club will have a guest speaker, Dr. Stephen Morse. Dr. Morse will discuss ‘The Julian Calendar and Why We Need to Know About It’.
The Julian calendar is important to historians because it was used worldwide for over 16 centuries and in various parts of the world for another three centuries. It is important to genealogists because it was used to record events in many countries as recently as the early 1900’s. This presentation will explain the workings of the Julian calendar and the reforms that were made to convert it to the more accurate Gregorian calendar. The implications of the reforms will also be discussed and the problems that they can cause for genealogists and historians.
Beth El Synagogue is located at 50 Maple Stream Road, East Windsor NJ, 08520. Please call the Synagogue Office with any questions.
