The year is completed! There is a page for every calendar date, but as I’ve gone through the year I’ve changed how I do things. So I’ve started back through the year making changes and adding information. I still  would love it if you would let me know of people or events who should be added. (As a rule I haven’t added births after 1940 or deaths after 1980 unless someone is very prominent. These aren’t hard and fast rules, but it would quickly become a list of celebrities as opposed to historical figures if I didn’t make some cut off.) I hope you enjoy the site and add anyone you would like to see here in the comments. The site continues to be a work in progress. Thank you!
