The First Party and the start of Anno Societatis numbering, the start
of A.S. 1, was 1 May 1966.
Therefore, if there had been an A.S. 0, it would have started 1 May
So take the year and subtract 1965. If the date is January-April
inclusive, subtract 1 (because A. S. New Year's hasn't come yet in
this Gregorian calendar year).
99-65 = 34.
After 1 May, so it really is A. S. 34
2001-1965 = 36
Before 1 May, so it's A. S. 35

that I'm right.
