Clicking the Webtrees Calendar Menu item presents you with a choice of selecting a day, a month, or a year to display historical family tree information.
The calendar is an anniversary calendar, so it will give you a list of all the anniversaries on a given day, on a given month, or on a given year. These anniversaries may be individual anniversaries or family anniversaries, and like most menu items in Webtrees clicking on any of the individual names or families names takes you directly to that person or family record.
The settings for each of the day, month and year drop-down menus are similar, and you can jump from one to the other, so there are three different ways of finding records.
Webtrees Calendar Views
Day view displays all your family tree events that took place on THAT day of the month in any year.
Month view displays all your family tree events that took place on ANY day of that month in any year.
Year view displays all your family tree events that took place on ANY day of that year.
The ‘All individuals‘ option has a drop-down menu which allows you to display only ‘Living individuals‘ or only the ‘last 100 years‘ and the icons alongside allow you to select only men or only women.
The ‘Vital records’ option has a drop-down menu which allows you to display only births, only baptisms, marriages, divorces, deaths, burials, emigrations, etc.
By default, the calendar displays the Gregorian calendar, but it can also be displayed as a Julian Calendar, a Jewish, Hijri or Jalali calendars. The different calendars have different rules and this may mean some dates in one calendar has no absolute equivalent date in one of the other calendars. In those cases, the day or date may only be an approximation.
