Calculate Birthdate Day of the Week
We might want to find out what particular day of the week one of our ancestors was born.
This tool does that for you.
Just click the button below and enter the birth date in this format:
September 11, 1857
Three letter month abbreviations like Sep or Oct are okay, too.
So why would you want to know what day of the week an ancestor was born?
Well, if you had something saying your ancestor was born on a Monday and also had the birth date, you could compare the two “facts” as a double check on the birth date.
Or maybe your ancestor was born on the thirteenth and you wondered if it was a Friday 13th.
Or maybe they had a given name of Sunday and you wondered if that was the day of the week they were born on instead of a family surname of a related line.
