If the year is divisible by 100 then it is a Leap Year if it is also divisible by 400.

"My Great Grandmother, Gladis, a wonderful woman, passed away in 1991. She was 87 years old. Growing up, my birthday was very special and she always treated it that way. Her birthday, as I was always told was on February 28, 1904.I often said to her, if you were born one day later, we would be sharing our birthdays. When she passed away it was the first time I realized that her birthday was actually February 29th, 1904 as was written in her obituary. Since My Grandmother pre-deceased her, I asked my mother why I never was told this. She said she didn't know either and felt that My Great Grand mother just wanted the day to be special for me. Since then I have learned that when people were born years ago, it was not uncommon for people to say their birthday was the 28th because it was easier. I loved my Great Grandmother very much and I truly believe that she just wanted a special day for me. My story is about a wonderful woman. Gladis Carter Born February 29th, 1904 Died May 1st, 1991 Loved by ALL"
