Only An Approximation

There may be times where the best you can do is to approximate. A location may only be as precise as the county or a date may only be as precise as the year. While for some researchers this can be frustrating, there are times where that level of detailĀ is all the records will allow you to determineĀ and it may not impact the more important conclusions about family relationships.

It’s rare when an entire genealogical conclusion hinges on whether a person was born on 17 or 18 December of 1915.
