Here are some possible explanations:

- In census records, the information is only as good as the knowledge of the respondent (the person who spoke to the census taker may have been guessing).
- Borders and/or sovereignty changed over the years, and the person may have answered in terms of the then-current location of the birthplace.

Good luck in your research!
