Someone has edited the Gerontology Wiki page on her recently to say that she was born in Kolešino as the daughter of Andon and Guna Ezev. How reliable is this info, and can an early-life document be found using it?

Mr. Ramiz Selmani, who claimed to be the oldest known man from North Macedonia ever, sadly died on 2 July 2023 at the age of 108 years, 265 days.

He was born in the village of Llojan, municipality of Lipkovo, Kingdom of Serbia (present-day North Macedonia) on 10 October 1914.

In December 2022 he surpassed the age of Ted Petkoff (1904–2012) of Canada (108 years, 65 days) and became the claimed oldest known Macedonian-born man ever.

At the time of his death, he was the oldest known living person born on the territory of present-day North Macedonia and second-oldest known living person in North Macedonia (behind Ms. Fikrije Loki).

Ms. Fikrije Loki, the oldest known person ever from North Macedonia celebrated her claimed 110th birthday in Tetovo on 10 January 2024.

She was born as Fikrije Bunjaku in the village of Bicec, municipality of Kacanik, Ferizaj District, Kingdom of Serbia, (present-day Kosovo) on 10 January 1914 as the penultimate child in an Albanian ethnic family.

In 1955, together with family, she moved to the city of Tetovo, Macedonia.

In January 2014, she celebrated her 100th birthday and became a centenarian.

On 20 August 2023, she surpassed the final age of Zaide Sali (1902–2011) – 109 years, 221 days, becoming the oldest known person to ever live in North Macedonia.

On 10 January 2024, she celebrated her 110th birthday and became the first known supercentenarian from North Macedonia.

This woman had a child in 1963. I think this fact deserves at least a question mark after the birthyear...

Yes, she gave birth to a son at the age of 49 (the last child), it is not impossible, Maria Capovilla (1889-2006) gave birth to a daughter at the age of 48 and was documented to live to 116. Fikrije Loki will be fully documented or not will be known in the coming months...

Not impossible does not mean it's not a huge red flag.

I believe Fusa Tatsumi had children in her 40s too correct?
