(+) Calculating Birth Dates from Death Date InformationThe following is a Plus Edition article, written by and copyright by Dick Eastman.  What day was that ancestor born? It seems like such a simple question, and yet finding the answer can be surprisingly complex, even when you have the numbers in front of you. Exact dates are often found in death certificates and frequently on tombstones. The problem is that these are often written as death dates followed by the person’s age at death.
