Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

CONFLICTS

Given Name: This database uses Hattie Maria. The 1900 census uses an alternate spelling of Hette for her first name. [census-us-1900-ps-mn-becker-11-5b]

Surname: This database uses Swanson. The birth certificate for her daughter Pearl uses Swansen. [birth-pearl-marks-1918]

Birth Date: This database uses 6 October 1889. The 1900 U.S. Census gives an explicit birth date (Oct 1890) and an age (9). When applied to the official census date of 1 Jun 1900, the age gives a birth date range of 2 June 1890 to 1 June 1891, so the record is internally consistent. [census-us-1900-ps-mn-becker-11-5b]
