Thanks for all the replies.  I had neglected to look at the FAQ page,
obviously.  I promise not to change the record that I saw!

Subject: Re: [PCCLIST] Birth and death dates

I think that in such cases one ought to keep in mind the previous
practice that, if one is revising the *heading* (not the record) for
some required reason, one may then add dates.

As has alrerady been said on this list, database maintenance personnel
world-wide will thank you for your restraint.

If a personal name heading has only a death date, but a cataloger nows
the birth date, may the heading be modified to include both dates?

Thanks.
