Laura Branigan born 1957, and her little brother Billy, born in...also 1957!! Note the difference..Billy's 28 Feb, 1957. Laura's just 1957, no date or month. How could it happen? Updated 4th April 2016. From a genealogist who knew how it works. " If the newspaper obituary had incorrect information when it was published it will forever be wrong in that issue of the newspaper." So the wrong press release from Aug 2004 has made it forever to 1957 and Brewster in Laura's genealogy heritage.
Why 1957 always and forever will be connected with Laura. The press release published in August 2004 where Laura's wrong info was sent out. Wrongs that doesn't were corrected will always be in the index when genealogy sites updates info. So, I still can't understand how so close friends as KG says they were, and still had no clue about Laura's real birth year, birthplace, age, etc. That is a mysterious!
