Re: Different date on birth record #romania #yizkorbooks #records

He picked a day and stuck with it. His birth record apparently says the 22nd, and, if the record was made about the 22nd, it is right. His parents knew the date on the Jewish calendar, not the Christian one.

"I reached out to one (of many) archives in Romania for a birth record of my grandfather. On all of his documents (ship manifest, naturalization etc) his birthdate is listed as 15th of October. On the record from Romania his date of birth is listed as the 22nd of October. Any ideas? Could the date of birth that’s recorded be the date that his parents reported it and not his actual date of birth?"
