I've been working on the belief that in Quaker documents prior to 1752, 1 maps to March, 2 to April, etc.
However, I'm confused by what I see here:
|caption=U.S., Quaker Meeting Records, 1681-1935
where, for example, John Garrigues on the 4th line is given as 1-22-1742.3 and Samuel Garrigues on the 7th line is given as 1-22-1747.8.
To me, this indicates that the month must be January since January and February are the only months that made the year problematic.
What's going on here? I realize that many of these Quaker records were transcribed at a later time, but I wouldn't think they'd translate the months while doing so.
