Error 605 suggestion [closed]

After the first 50 or so errors (numbers in birthplace), every one has been that the numbers were actually the birth year in the birth place field. A computer would be a better choice for this work. Can a script be written that evaluates the information in the birthplace with error 605 to see if

 

A it is between 1500 and 2000? If it is, is it within 100 years of the death date. If no death date exists, I would simply replace the birthdate with the birthplace with the comment "birth place moved to birth date" comment.

My mind is better used elsewhere.

So in other words I should not add the precise farm my ancestors was born on because it contains a number? Jamming everything into bio where it takes you 10 min to find the info that should just show on first look sounds unappetizing to me.
