Best answer

For an estimated date of birth I would recommend, as previously expounded upon, the tag/template:

{{Estimated Date|Birth}}

This fits in with the general scheme for Estimated Date templates

{{Estimated Date|Death}} 
{{Estimated Date|Marriage}} 
{{Estimated Date|Birth and Death}} 
{{Estimated Date|Birth and Marriage}} 
{{Estimated Date|Death and Marriage}} 
{{Estimated Date|Birth Death and Marriage}}

Additionally, the {{DateGuess}} template has been officially retired.
