Volunteering for standardized Places
I have some concerns about volunteers standardizing place names. I was recently contacted by a volunteer regarding the place name of my great-uncle. I had attached a document that indicated that he lived in "Eden Terrace.' The volunteer reached out to me and indicated that the only 'Eden Terrace' he/she could find, was in New Zealand, and that didn't seem correct given the other information on my uncle. The "Eden Terrace" in question was the name of the apartment complex where my uncle lived in Sarasota, Florida. I would like to suggest that volunteers NOT do anything to profiles/documentation/etc. for individuals not related to them. It is not that I do not appreciate their work, it is simply the fact that these volunteers 1.) do not know the individuals/families they are working on and 2.) do not read all the documentation attached already.
