The Date Calculator Gramplet allows you to do date math.
Enter at least one valid date for Expression 1 and Expression 2 then click the Calculate button.
An expression can be:
- a valid Gramps date
- a positive or negative number (represents years)
- a positive or negative tuple (years, months, days) Note that only a single leading negative sign is needed to indicate a negative tuple.
Note that at least one expression must be a date.
Select the Date Calculator Gramplet from the Gramplet menu.
Enter the desired expressions and press the Calculate to see the result.
Use the Clear button to start again.
Assume that a headstone has only a date of death and age at death.
Blessed are the dead
who die in the Lord
I will behold thy face
Enter a date in each field in the following format ( YYYY-MM-DD ).
Enter a starting date or an offset value (such as the date of the most recent birthday on a marriage license):
for the wife in the example gravestone, enter 14 Nov 1902
an offset tuple is in the form y,m,d
Example for "Aged 73Yrs. 4Mo. & 3Ds.", use "- 73, 4, 3"
Note that only a single leading negative sign is needed to indicate a negative tuple.
Pressing the Calculate button returns 1829-07-11. When storing a date that's been calculated from a reference rather than a historical record, it is hard to be certain what methodology was used. So the results are an estimate. Annotate this by preceding the value with "calc abt"
