Dates Edit

According to IMDB.com, Jim Goodwin was born on May 21, 1929 and died on May 18, 1980.--Memphis77 (talk) 05:36, February 19, 2018 (UTC)

IMDB is not the most reliable source of information. I would suggest we try and verify it first before changing anything in the article. --| TrekFan Open a channel 12:05, February 19, 2018 (UTC)
Hello from Fandom -- I am leaving this note to let you know that a reader also messaged us about this discrepancy and wondered which dates are correct, so it's being noticed. -BertH @fandom (help forum | blog) 21:51, December 3, 2018 (UTC)
Heh, I ran across this same report from a reader and got intrigued over my morning coffee today. I saw no fewer than three reported death ages for Goodwin on a single page of a Google search! So I called the Beverly, MA City Clerk and confirmed death date of 18 May 1980. On the basis of that, I've been bold and changed the date of death on this page. That does not, in my view, settle the birth date, however, as there appears to be some conflict over whether that was 1929 or 1937. If we wanna get full confirmation on everything, an actual, certified copy of the death certificate from this link would be required.

James Francis Goodwin was born in Boston, Massachusetts on 21 May 1929, according to various official birth and death indices. (Which also confirms the date given by the City Clerk.) --Alan (talk) 14:17, December 4, 2018 (UTC)
Works for me! Thanks for your swift help!
