gjene 14 | 204 18 Aug 2019 #1I am wondering if putting down an incorrect age is a normally accepted thing from the 1920's. On the marriage certificate for my grandmother, it has her listed as 18 yrs old when she actually is 17yrs 8 mos. On the certificate it would indicate she would have been born in 1903 not 1904. Then with her 1st child (born in 1925) her age indicates she was born in 1903 not 1904. Then with her 2nd child (born in 1928) her age indicates she may have been born in 1902. Her 3rd child born in 1931 shows her age as being 28 would indicate a 1903 birth year. Back then, would the church require some kind of id or proof of age in order to marry? If my grandmother had to prove how old she was at the time of marriage, would this information have been recorded?
