Liturgical Calendars

Recommended Posts

I have been referencing the calendars for some time now.  In my current efforts though I am reading a church book from Germany. In it during the 1687 year they have begun listing the Sunday from this calendar and at times they also enter a specific date.  Due to this I am noticing that the year 1687 seems to be off by 3 days.  Meaning, that when I get the reference of an event occurring on Cantate 1687 I would expect that to be the 24th of April.  However, also in the record it indicates this event took place on the 27th of April.

I wish I had some other option as this seems as though something is in error.

      The Spring Slowdown

      04/23/2017

      I think it is a common theme really.  Each year as spring opens and the weather allows a release to the outdoors, the website will see a slowing in information.  That is ok, we really love our gardens as well.  I am also a huge fan of grilling foods.  I am not sure any of that will change in years to come either.   We have also taken a grand step in our field research and spent a week primarily in New Jersey with a few stops in Pennsylvania. It was a grand discovery, and yet, it was overwhelming as well. I have yet to go through all of the information that we uncovered.  And again, we found more holes that need attention.  I jokingly tell my bride that I am "DONE" now that I have linked my American lineage to the initial immigrant from Germany.  It is just a joke, there is always more to do. Thankfully so!   In the coming weeks things will settle and we will once again make some time to get more of our information on line.  Expect a wealth of data surrounding the early Tinsmans in America, maybe in Germany as well.  I will see what I can do.  I will also get more linked information posted for other areas.  Finding so many local resources while we traveled has proven that courthouses and societies are very important places to visit, and even make new friends.   I hope you will find something worth your visit, maybe even something Grand!!!!!
