Never Put the Exact Year or the Exact Age

Even if I'm searching for someone born in 1860 in the 1860 census, I always put an age range of at least two years when performing census searches or any search where age is a parameter. 

No matter how "right" you think the age is, there is always room for error.

  1. You may be "right," but the sources being searched may be off a year or two.
