Re: Marriage document date doesn't match other records #records #poland


From my experience and some things I have read mentions that :People in Europe were not so invested in proper dates. Also peoples memories differed at different times.  My grandmother's birthday was "unknown" by my family.  Then found another document -my great grandfather' naturalization papers, that showed one date and then I found her actual birth certificate in Poland. I would "trust" the earliest record until another more credible record comes to light.. In my uneducated, humble opinion
