I also believe the earlier recorded dates of birth are more reliable.
Interestingly enough, I don't remember a case in which the ages provided in
the New Countries [U.S. or Argentina] were older than the dates provided in
the Old Country. In many cases in my family people said after immigration
they were younger than the original records stated. I think many people
believed that they had better chances of getting work if they were younger.
