DOB

The Black Famiy tree lists his birth as 1938, and it is referenced throughout the article. The article says 1929 throughout, though. --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 18:01, July 4, 2010 (UTC)

On the screenshot from Order of the Phoenix, his year of birth seems to be '38. However, on the family tree presented on the HP Lexicon (which is, reportedly, a copy of JKR's) his year of birth is '29. 1938 would take precedence as a) it's more recent and b) it is from a more reliable source. However, I'm not sure. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 18:18, July 4, 2010 (UTC)
Update: Apparently, a copy of Rowling's hand-drawn Black family tree was included in Harry Potter Film Wizardry. See this (click on image to zoom in). It bears "Cygnus: 1938-1992". The Lexicon copy was, it seems, mistranscribed. I'll edit the article accordingly. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 14:09, December 11, 2011 (UTC)
I think the 1928 has to be right, I'm afraid. Otherwise, he was 13 when Bellatrix was born, 15 when Andromeda was born and 17 when Narcissa was born. I think 1929 is right. 86.161.108.247 02:38, December 28, 2011 (UTC)HarryPotterRules1
Could also be a case of questionable math from Rowling's end. Or, heck, maybe he mucked up those contaceptive spells that fanon is so keen on. It's not like there haven't been (from the POV of current muggle norm) ridiculously young parents before. Aryllia 00:21, December 31, 2011 (UTC)

Years at Hogwarts

Out of interest, since we know what year he was born in, can't we deduce the probable time he was at Hogwarts? I mean, I know it's impossible to get his exact years, as we have no idea what month he was born, but we could have the possibilites on here. - Deathislife2011 08:34, June 8, 2012 (UTC)
