Birth Year Mistakes #general

David Goldman <davic@...>

My grandmother and my family always said she was born in 1900 in Canada. I
think this was an issue of vanity, since she was actually born in 1899 in
Russia. I think I remember hearing that she didn't want to say she was born
in the 19th century and in Russia. What's a year here or there?! In her
case she was 3 or 4 years old when she came to Canada with her family: a
minor fib......
