Error in Time Line mapping
I was working on a relative, William Riddle Smyers 15 May 1847 – 22 March 1919 • K4XD-3PG
I noticed that some of his life events are mapped incorrectly. On the Time Line map, his birth, 1850 US Census, and 1860 US Census are shown in the state of Indiana, not Indiana *County* in the state of Pennsylvania.
All 3 facts are correctly standardized as "Montgomery Township, Indiana, Pennsylvania, United States".
Other locations in Indiana county appear to be mapped correctly.
I think I found how to fix it:
Yes, that is the correct place to report such things. Looking in the Places database for the township: https://www.familysearch.org/research/places/?searchTypeaheadInputText=Montgomery%20Township,%20Indiana,%20Pennsylvania,%20United%20States&text=Montgomery%20Township,%20Indiana,%20Pennsylvania,%20United%20States&focusedId=4839185 , everything looks fine except that the latitude and longitude are incorrect. They accidentally got typed in as 38.6633, -87.0472 when they should have been entered as: 40.78333, -78.88333.
It's a big database and mistakes do happen when entering data. It should not take long for someone to fix this.0
