Birth Town Entry
Please, enter the birth town (not the place
where you live!). Often, it is also sufficient to enter the first few letters
of the name of the place.
After clicking on the "continue" button,
please check if the birth town field displays the correct place. It may happen
that our computer finds several places of same or similar name. In such cases
you have to select the correct place from the pulldown list.
If the birth town required is not found
in our database, please choose a greater town or city close to the place you
would have wanted. To do this, first choose the entry "go to new place selection"
in the birth town selection box and click on the "continue" button. Then you
can enter a new place name.
Required precision of birth location
If birth time is precise to +- 1 minute, the birth location does not have to be more precise than 15 km or 10 miles, without loosing precision of the chart.
If birth time is known only with a precision of 5 minutes, location does not have to be more precise than 75 km or 50 miles.
It makes absolutely no sense to aim for exact street location, unless the birth time is known to the second, which is never the case.
How to change an incorrect birth
- getting born again is a good possibility ;-) but there are others:
- Click on the link "other town" which is placed on the right hand side of your
presently chosen birth place (above the "continue" button).
- Now you can enter the new city name and press the "continue" button as usual.
