Can someone provide me with a list of the weekday that January 1st fell on from 1487 to 1550?

Question:I also find it really confusing from these two sites:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1490...
http://www.timeanddate.com/calendar/inde...

One says that January the 1st fell on a Saturday and the other on a Friday! What is going on?

I also calculated myself that it should fall on a Friday, but would Wikipedia be wrong? That is what I am unsure of.

Relating to my first question, is there any way to determine which weekday the 1st of January will fall on for any year?

Thank you for your help!

It's nearly 3 in the freakin' morning, and I still haven't kicked my high heels off. hiccup!
My research using a perpetual calendar placed 1.1.1487 on a Saturday. The only way that it would make sense for the dates to read otherwise would be that someone made a change in the manner of counting after that date. The usage of a perpetual calendar is probably the best way to determine which weekdays any day has or will fall on.
1515 - King Francis I of France succeeds to the French throne.
1511 - Henry born, Duke of Cornwall (d. 1511)
1516 - Margaret Leijonhufvud born, Queen of Gustav I of Sweden (d. 1551)
1515 - King Louis XII of France died (b. 1462)
Just find one of those 'World Almanacs' and look at the Perpetual Calendar they all have.Very easy to use and even a little fun.ever wonder what day of the week an event was? Look there.
1-1-??
