Re: Warsaw birth record - why registered 3 months late? #warsaw

I'm curious to know how you know the date of the "actual event," relative to the registered date.  I have yet to encounter anyone from that region and period who reports their date of birth -- day, month or year -- consistently.   My paternal grandfather reported birthdays in May, August and September on various documents filed over decades, but in his later years we always celebrated in December.  What is your source for determining the actual date?  What kind of alternative record do you have?
