If you are a genealogy buff like I am, you love to mention your ancestors in blogs and status posts. Birthdays and wedding dates mean so much to people like us, but how many times have dates slipped by unnoticed or we’ve missed them by mere days or weeks? We need a way to record and organize our family’s special dates.
In the old days, the traditional family Bible was used to record events, but professional and amateur genealogists know when you uncover as many family members as we have, a Bible is not going to be large enough.
To record family events, a calendar would be the obvious choice, but the little squares on a commercial calendar are too small, especially if you have four ancestors born on the same date, and the days of the weeks would be incorrect depending on the year the original event took place. An online perpetual calendar is cumbersome. It took me four hours to upload dates for my immediate family of thirteen. Imagine how long it would take to upload the birthdays, death dates, and marriage dates of the 9,000 people in my family tree.
These are the reasons I created On This Day: A Perpetual Calendar for Family Genealogy.
