KMA asked: "When you are creating your source/source attributes for the record what do you say ----do you say something like this:

“There was no birth date provided for Suzy Q, but I noticed she “appears” to have been born between Billy and Janey and I saw that Billy and Janey were born about three years apart so I just made up a date, that is in between Billy’s and Janey’s and called it “ABT””


Reply: Well kind of... I would phrase it differently. " At this time we have not found a date for the birth of Suzy Q. However, based on the birth dates of Billy and Janey, and the fact that we know that Suzy was born between them, we have deduced that her birth year was x. (or between x and y, or what ever you deduced)."
