Re: Coincidence? #general
My father, who was born in what is now Poland related to me that when he asked his mother when he was born she said (in Yiddish of course) "A week before Pesach" When he came to the USA he guessed March 15.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Our ancestors didn't keep track of when they were born. Even the first generation in the US, their parents didn't know correct the birth dates of their kids. There's a story in my family of one kid who asked how old he was, and they thought he was about 12; they didn't know. You might find even more dates in more records. Usually they settled on a date at a certain time and gave that one in future records.
