4-level place names

One of the issues that probably needs to be addressed is how the different program parse the place name. While city/county/state/country works fine in the United States, the 4-level setup doesn't' always work world-wide. Some programs, such as PAF Insight parse the place name from the right. It exp...

first choice

I prefer listing the cemetery in the place name instead of notes or sources because it simplifies many things (among them notes and sources). Salt Lake City Cemetery, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah Mount Olivet Cemetery, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah Riverview Cemetery, Tremonton, Box Elder, Uta...

Technical winkles

Got a problem...

Hood River County, Oregon

Tried to fix Portal to add Washington (it's across the border), and got Hood River county listed in Washington category instead.:confused:

name of cemetery in note - not!

To me, the cemetery name, like a hospital, belongs in the source citation. Very easily searched, contains address, telephone, inscription, etc. I disgree. Pint out the notes and give to somebody - you are out of luck. That person is not going to read the notes to find it. Evidently you haven't had ...

Utah co 31 Salt Lake 41 Davis 22

In my opinion, burial has two puposes, burial date and place-name (City, County, State, Country just like other place-names). This approach works very well for me. I pretty much have no notes, only sources. To me, hospital, cemetery, church, etc. all belong in the source citation. It would be inter...

I personally find it extremely easy to find a cemetery name within my sources for burial. The only "notes" that I use are the "comments" within my source citations. I have a national database that shows 37 cemeteries in Salt Lake county, 21 in Utah county, etc. I did not want to spend too much time...

If something like that was done, I think I would personally prefer a new field AND the change to PAF (with other changes). I believe every repository for primary source citations on burials is the cemetery itself. I have almost completely moved away from notes as I found most every note had a sourc...

Cemetery name

What if we were to create a new field to hold that information? Or at least a specific note tag so it would be easy to find? Fat chance of that happening. I prefer the name of cemetery in PLAIN VIEW. Not hidden in notes. If you have seen the onerous notes in the newFamilySearch, you don't want it h...

I have heard rumor about cemetery names being allowed in place-names. I would hope we would not go down that road. If cemetery names are allowed for burial . . . Why not hospitals for birth or death? What about churches for marriages? What about nursing homes for death? Oh yes, some are born at hom...

I do not know about Norfolk, but if that is incorrect, especially in the new FamilySearch, it should be reported through feedback. I checked in Standard Finder and did not find any county in the USA listed as Norfolkshire. Actually, I found the same in FHLC. Maybe you are referring to England? In a...
