Al Jolson's Birth Records

Al Jolson's date of birth has been the subject of debate for decades. It was long thought there were no birth records for him, so verifying a date was considered impossible. Both birth and military records have recently been discovered, and confirm his birth took place in May of 1886. March 23, March 26, May 23, and May 26 have all erroneously been reported as his birth date. Those newly uncovered birth records appear below, and show May 28, 1886 (O.S.), as his date of birth. Visit our biography of Al Jolson for more information on this entertainer.

NOTE: His May 28th date of birth is Old Style (O.S.), since the Julian calendar was still in use locally. This date is June 9 (N.S.), 1886, on the New Style (N.S.) or Gregorian calendar.
