[quote=""Susan""]I am assuming you mean my dates. They are the dates that are commonly used for the occasions. As you may know, countries adopted the new date style at different times.[/quote]

Yes, of course I know that different countries swopped calendars at different times and Russia notably not until the 20th century. That is why I asked the question. Most of the texts I use state quite clearly, for example, that the day and month are old style but the year has been taken to have changed on 1st January or give both dates (except, of course, when said text was written before the change). Unless you have that information, it is really quite difficult to make sense of anything (particularly for dates occurring before 25th March) because different writers might be using a different scheme.
