I have recently found that many sources have now added the township they are in - even if a smaller jurisdiction is shown. Why?
If there is a Village, hamlet, city or small town why must we now have the township shown?
In our part of Texas we have Commissioner Precincts - and they are redrawn after every census - it would be worthless to show them for that reason - some do.
Sure townships generally don't change their boundary - but it is nicer to know the actual entity instead of its township as well. I saw how it was when we were in New York State for about two years. It is nice to be able to know what the township is - but not to have it shown in all records as part of the place.
I have a large database of relatives and now many the places no longer agree with your records.
I like it when the drop down box shows when the places existed at various times. Sometimes it is hard to tell when the source refers to a parish, city, hamlet, village, or something else when it was mentioned in the record. Your drop-down box often shows the same entry until after it is added when you specify what kind of record it was [parish, community, census are, etc.]. Also there are many records shown in the sources that you show in other counties [where they are now] than how they were at earlier times. As a result the record is stated as incorrect unless added as you show it, and we are not able to show it as legitimate when we show what the record shows. Is there something that can be done?
I realize many people don't understand the Family Tree and cause numerous problems in almost any point if left to their way of doing things. IE. showing one of numerous names of a cemetery in burial place - or hospital, residence, or parish, etc. for a death place. If those places were placed in the 'reason the information is correct' it would make things easier many times.
