JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Ethical Question, Found Date Discrepany on Cemetary Headstone #general


Deborah Sterling
 

While checking the information on a Declaration of Intention and then
looking at a photo I took myself of an ancestor's headstone, I've made the
deduction that the headstone is in error. (off by 3 years for year of
birth). Since the declaration is much earlier in time,
was filled out in front of the live relative, vs the headstone, and the age
adds up correctly on the petition, I am fairly certain of this discrepancy.

Now, the question, do I tell the son and daughter of the deceased? They
are both elderly and I don't like upsetting them, but should they know
about this?
anyone else run into this situation??
