After putting a date through the calculations, with today's date (a reverse
guess & try), I can see what you mean. It added 10 days.
Regarding exact dates in genealogy, with some people I have 3 exact
birthdates.......birth registration (given by friend of family), family
records and death registration----all gave different birthdates. I would
assume the birth registration was the right one, but if given by someone on
the best of their knowledge, who's to say that is right either? I usually
just pick one, and have the others in my notes with sources-------
