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.

db error 210. There is more than one error.. The entry should read: James Wesley NORRED (DOB: 28 Feb., 1865), (DOD: 13 Feb., 1943): Wife. Hassie PARTRIDGE (DOB: 28 Sept., 1862), (DOD: 21 Feb., 1936)...Married in 1882.

How do I correct the Error(s)..??

Bob, difference is one year and 6 months.

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.
