I am into genealogy. I have a collection of data pre sixteen hundred and one, which is the earliest date the program appears to allow. It would be great to be able to alter the PSE20 limit to say A.D. 1400

 

Any ideas most welcome-nice ones please!

Apparently it's a limitation of the operating system:

"The Gregorian calendar operates on a 400-year cycle, and 1601 is the first year of the cycle that was active at the time Windows NT was being designed. In other words, it was chosen to make the math come out nicely."

I'm using a Mac and can't go earlier than 1601 either.

The only suggestion I have is to give the date an unknown (????) year. I believe that will display the image as the earliest chronologically.  You may want to then devise a Month and Day scheme that willl fit the years or decades you are interested in recording.  For example, ???? May 1 could equal the first decade of the 16th Century.   ???? April 6 would be 1460 - 1469. 

Just a thought - and don't trust my math.

 

And, of course, you can record the exact date in a caption or note.

And one other thought:  Create an album for each period you are interested in defining and order the files chronologically in the Album Order, if that is what you want.

And here is one last, and more obvious, suggestion.  Rename the files with a date prefix yyyymmdd,  You can place your genealogy files in a separate folder or album and then use the Sort By: File Name to view them in chronological order.
