Thank you, Adam, for straightening me out. So do I add the date of birth in the 100|d even though it’s calculated and not cited?
For clarity’s sake, here is the 670 in question:
670 Śiḥot ʻim ha-malʼakh Daniyel, 2019: ǂb title page (איריס אור = Iris Or) title page verso, etc. (web address for her company ha-Merkaz ha-Yiśreʼeli le-limude Anglit, www.irisor.co.il; last of 8 daughters born to Yemenite parents who came to Israel in the early 1950s; Hebrew birthday 12 Tamuz; married 1987 at age 22 [b. 12 Tamuz 1965, that is, 12 July 1965]; lost 2 of her sons to suicide)
Note that the leap from 12 Tamuz 1965 to 12 July 1965 was made using calendar conversion software (libcal.com) standard to Hebraica catalogers.
Thanks again, Jasmin
Ahem... You are not mistaken, Jasmin.

My apologies; I think I was mistaken in thinking that recording cited dates in the 100|d is required for new NARs. Thanks for the reminder/clarification that it’s optional regardless of whether the date was determined or found.
Thanks again, Jasmin
If you “added the information in 670” you must be citing some source? How did you come to your conclusion? It’s fine to give evidence and then calculate from there, as long as you have evidence for your calculation.
Whether you include the date in 100 or not, you need to cite your source of information if you want to record something in 046. If you feel confident enough to record the information in 046 I see no reason why you shouldn’t also include it in the authorized access point, but as Charles Croissant noted, it’s up to you.

Hi, I’m creating a new NAR for a first-time author. From various pieces of information I was able to determine her date of birth. I’ve added that information in the 670 and 046|f. However, since I have no actual source to cite for the date, I’m not sure if I may/am required to add the date in the A.A.P. |d? I’ve looked at the FAQ’s for NARs and see nothing about calculated dates. (There is no conflict in the NAF.)
