When you have numerous source documents that reflect two or sometimes three different birth dates, how do you know which date is correct?
1.Sometimes the baptismal document will have the birth date on it, which I would think is accurate.
2.I don't consider Find A Grave as a source for birth or death unless that's all I have!
2. I don't consider birth dates or birth locations on Census as valid.
3.I have found errors in the dates on the US Sons of the American Revolution Membership Applications so I wouldn't use them (Many of Martin Luther Fritz's ancester's have these applications).
4. Obituary's are not a valid source for birth and death dates.
5.Ohio, Death Records, 1908-1932, 1938-2007
6. Book History of Ohio
What documents are typically the most accurate?
