Being new to RootsChat I've only just come across your handiwork Brambletye and can only endorse what many others have said : what a brilliant idea! It's obvious from the feedback that many people do find it a problem and have to resort to paper sums or even using a calculator, so well done for helping so many RootsChatters.

Incidentally, one thing I particularly liked about your table was that it gives the birth years as "year1/year2". It has always annoyed me somewhat that so many web-sites and so many people simply give the birth year as census year minus census age (eg. age 10 in 1861 census means born in 1851). Most censuses were taken in late March or early April and so it is 3 times as likely to be the previous year (i.e 1850 in that example). For that reason I have always subtracted another 1 to give the most likely year of birth and it was therefore reassuring to see your table give the result of my example as 1850/51. That does in fact prompt me to ask another question but I shall do so as a new topic (Please see my posting "Family Tree Maker Dates" in Technical Help).
