Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

CONFLICTS

Birth Date: This database uses 3 June 1887. The 1895 Minnesota Census gives an age of (8), which, when applied to the offical census date of 1 Jun 1895, gives a birth date range from 2 June 1897 to 1 June 1897. (This conflict goes away if this page's enumeration date of 12 June 1895 was incorrectly used instead of the official census date.) [census-us-mn-1895-becker-hamden-4]

SPELLING

Given Name: This database uses Charles Edwin. The 1895 Minnesota Census uses a middle name spelling of Edvin. [census-us-mn-1895-becker-hamden-4]

FOLLOWUP

The 1917 draft registration card for Charles notes that his father, mother, and one brother were dependent on him for support. Could this one brother be Severin? [military-draftreg-charles-swanson-1917]
