Kathy was kind enough to point out that after importing from an FTM Gedcom,
I should check my record of place names. If only she could have been just a
little bit right!
Again I like the way GB does things and it is showing up all sorts of
inconsistancies in my previouse record keeping. To be consistant from the
begining in GB I intend to use the place level record as follows;
1 Local Site
- Street address
6 National Area.
Is this ok?
When I fix up all my errors I will have numerous records of the same
address. How do I merge them?.
I also have instances of a street address i.e. 123 Graveney Road, being in
different places at different times. With the different
certificates/censuses I have, it started in Streatham - moved to Tooting -
and finished up in Upper Tooting. (goodness knows where it is now!) For each
event I have shown the address as it was recorded/kept at the time. However
in the place record, how do I show them all as being the same place ?
Thanks for your ongoing help
