Birthdate Field

Birthdate (People)

The date should be entered in reverse format, YYYY-MM-DD so that it can be easily sorted. You may only know the year or part of the date, put in what you know and if you need to make a comment, put it in the Administrative note.

Examples:

1860-09-06

1933

1894-03

Use the same resources to locate dates that you used to locate names. Often for more modern people a combination of a census search and a Social Security Death Index search can help you. The census provides a more detailed record, so you can verify the person by looking at where they lived, spouse and children's names, and their occupation.
