Don't trust birth date, even if set in stone




Check out this great article by Sharon Tate Moody CG where she discusses in the Tampa Bay Tribune how sometimes we do need to question the information found on a tombstone or in other resources and how we determine what the “correct” information is!




Have you had a similar experience where birth (or death) dates have varied across several resources?  How did you resolve the conflict?  What have you found to be the best resources for these dates? Please post a comment and share your experience with us!
