Birth date issue for Leopold WOLF #general


John Anderson
 

I'm wondering if someone can figure this out without me having to send
away for 2 birth certificates. In trying to pin down the date of birth
of a distant cousin, Leopold WOLF, I have found 2 differing accounts:

New Jersey, Births and Christenings Index, 1660-1931 about Wolf
Name: Wolf
Gender: Male
Birth Date: 31 Jan 1875
Birth Place: Newark, Essex, New Jersey
Father's Name: David Wolf
Father's Age: 33
Father's Birth Place: Germany
Mother's name: Regina Lehman
Mother's Age: 29
Mother's Birth Place: Germany
FHL Film Number: 494186

New Jersey, Births and Christenings Index, 1660-1931
about Wolf
Name: Wolf
Gender: Male
Birth Date: 25 Feb 1875
Birth Place: Newark, Essex, New Jersey
Father's Name: David Wolf
Mother's name: R
FHL Film Number: 494177

The couple, David WOLF and Rachel LEHMAN, had 8 children, of whom Leopold
was the second oldest. The 1900 Federal census lists his birth as Jan 1875.
The World War I Draft Registration lists it as 25 Feb 1875. How can I best
reconcile the discrepancy?
