New section proposal[edit]

Propose adding an additional section (such as [1]), to wit: "Disputed year of birth" so as to include film star Joan Crawford whose date of birth (March 23) is not questioned but whose year of birth is subject to dispute (see her article); i.e. 1904, 1905, 1906, 1908 all thrown out there, although 1904 almost biologically impossible as her elder brother seems to have been born in September 1903 and no one believes 1908 the year she officially adopted, but anyway......

Any suggestions?? Quis separabit? 19:27, 12 November 2013 (UTC)[]

There is a similar discussion underway at WT:DAYS and since this would be a project wide discussion, it should be continued there. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 19:31, 12 November 2013 (UTC)[]

1708 – James Francis Edward Stuart lands at the Firth of Forth. Possible error[edit]

This entry states that there was successful landing.

The link [Francis Edward Stuart] Directs to a Wiki page that clearly states "Though delayed in France by an attack of measles, James attempted invasion, trying to land at the Firth of Forth on 23 March 1708. The fleet of Admiral Sir George Byng intercepted the French ships, which, combined with bad weather, prevented a landing." in the Early Attempts section

One of the two is obviously incorrect. Since the second page has a reference, I suggest that the language on this page be changed to read "1708 – James Francis Edward Stuart attempts to land at the Firth of Forth"
