answer: There is a possibilty, but this possibility is very small.- What means ABT1853 or 'around 1853' with the presented birth date?
answer: ABT1853 means that this person is born around 1853. This can be wrong if the exact information is not in this database. Sometimes this can differ more than 40 years if the expected date is retrieved from a record that did not mention any birth information.- The date of birth is far from correct? The date is just after or before the date of marriage?
answer: The date of birth is calculated if specific information was not found. A calculated date is retrieved from the deceased date by substracting 10 years of the deceased date. The birth information will automatically improve if birth of baptism information is found.Improvements and additions:
