Simple and effective
By , for WP 3.9.1

I want to display the birth dates of famous British men and women on the appropriate day; this plugin does that effectively. I'd agree with the review stating importing data would be ideal. I'd also like to display the day and month next to the Widget title.

Simple and A Good Fit For My Needs

Thanks for creating this plugin.

I was looking for a plugin that would allow me to display the birthdays of ancestors in a widget on my family history site's footer. While there are more elaborate plugins This Day In History does most of what I want without the weight and complexity of the other options.

The one thing I would add is that it would be ideal to be able to import/export using CSV files. When migrating information from one site to another or adding a large number of dates this would be a huge time saver. For example, I have over 400 birthdays I would like to enter. It is going to take ages to add them one at a time.
