For Lithuania old dates I add 12 days, but after 28 Feb 1900 I add 13
days.

I'm curious... I have many relatives who were born in Lithuania with
Julian
birthdates, emigrated to the West, and have Gregorian death dates.
Almost
always, these relatives didn't bother with the calendar transition; if
their
gravestones have full dates, they list the Julian birth and Gregorian
death.

Does anyone account for the difference in their tree? I've been doing
this
for a while, translating the Julian date to Gregorian, but I'm
starting to
wonder if that's the right way to go about this. I do record the
Julian
date in the fact notes.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Steve Adelson
