Try this: http://enws347.eas.asu.edu:8000/~buckner/bdform.html. PittyPat
sent me a URL as she knows I'm working on a perpetual calendar for
genealogists. So far, I have not found a decent calendar that can be
downloaded that is accurate for all countries and that has the birthdate
With luck, I will have the basic perpetual calendar available this
weekend. The birthdate calculation portion will take a while.

Q. Why do genealogist's die with a smile?
A. Because they know they are about to get another date on their pedigree.
