conflicting information on DOB[edit]

"Noe Zhordania ... (January 2, 1868 – January 11, 1953)" in the lead section, but "Noe Zhordania was born on March 9, 1869" in the first paragraph. xmf:ნოე ჟორდანია has 14 January [O.S. 2 January] 1868, ru:Жордания, Ной Николаевич has 21 March [O.S. 9 March] 1869. WHAT? --FordPrefect42 (talk) 18:26, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for noting this. I've found an interesting passage about the problem in Jones, Stephen F. (2005), Socialism in Georgian Colors: The European Road to Social Democracy, 1883-1917. Harvard University Press, ISBN 0674019024, p. 310, note 26.

"There is some dispute about his exact birth date (with different sources suggesting 1868, 1869, or 1870). Changing birthdays for various reasons was common practice at the time. Zhordania in his memoirs claims he was born in 1868."
