One of my ancestors was unfortunate enough to die on 29 February. SMW can't understand it, showing merely "<day out of range>". — Robin Patterson (Talk) 07:52, March 7, 2010 (UTC)

It gets worse. He allegedly "is now 27 years of age" despite his birth in 1734 and his death on that inauspicious day in 1768 at age about 33. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 08:03, March 7, 2010 (UTC)

Those of you who have looked at our page for 29 February may have wondered why about 6,000 Familypedia people (a large proportion) reportedly had birth, death, or another notable event on that day. I hope one of our experts can fix the problem!! — Robin Patterson (Talk) 05:24, October 25, 2010 (UTC)
