How do I index an ambiguous date?
Eliminating all other details, the death record I'm indexing has a birthdate of 09-01-1970 and death date of 06-12-2006. I am unsure if the dates are September 1 and June 12 or January 9 and December 6. Normally, I would go by the pattern in the other records to see whether the day should come before the month or vice-versa; however, the current batch that I'm working on has both formats in its other records (determinable by numbers greater than 12), so I don't know which is which.
Is there a default that I should go off of? Or would it be better to index this particular record twice so that I can ensure that I have the correct dates?
