If the date is approximate indicate that

If you have estimated a year of birth for someone, include "estimated" or "about" to let others know that you are uncertain of the date. Otherwise what was originally a guess on your part may be interpreted as a "fact" by someone else. Your notes should indicate how you arrived at that estimate or approximation, including a specific source if one was used.
