Ambiguous Date on Johannesburg Cemetery Record
1st question: there is a date listed on the top right of these records. Is that what I would put in the date of burial field? I don’t see any other field to put that date in, and it seems like it doesn’t go in the death date field.
2nd question: the date listed is “02-05-03.” I have no idea which one is the month, day, or year. Online I read that Johannesburg standard date short format is year-month-day. So this could be 2002-May-03? Or it could be Feb-02-2003. I checked nearby records in the available images and they all have the same date, so I would need to see a different batch to look for a pattern of how the date is listed.
