Wouldn't it be better to call the error dead before Conception? Just to avoid any confusion as fathers can be dead before birth....

Brungardt-195 Date of Death is: 5 Mar 1973 and

Brungardt-197 Date of Birth is: 18 Jan 1918.

The error report is saying the father was dead before birth. This error report is not correct. Can you remove the error report?

Thank you.

See Grönhagen-3 and Grönhagen-8. Father died less than 6 months before birth of youngest son. I think it's a false error, but there is no choice for that.

Ask on G2G for someone to correct it for you.

It is a typographical error that I am trying to fix. I am certified to make corrections on dates before 1700 but the system still won't let me. The number should have been a 1 instead of a 0.
