Source Notes

Shelley Jordan quotes Jan-Olof Damberg from the Jussi Björling museum in Sweden who wrote to Jordan: Jussi Björling was born on 5 February 1911 in Borlänge. However, an oddity surrounds his actual birth date. All his life, he celebrated his birthday on 2 February, but after his death, the engagement book of the midwife who delivered him came to light. It clearly shows that she assisted at the delivery at on 5 February (at 10 p.m.).
