Need a correction to a standardized place
Vernon county in Wisconsin was incorporated as Bad Ax county March 1, 1851. It was renamed to Vernon County March 22, 1862. Therefore, the indexes for the 1860 census should that name. Someone has taken it upon themselves to rename Viroqua as Viryna in portions of the 1860 census. However, I can't correct it to Viroqua, Bad Ax Wisconsin because that standardized place doesn't exist. Please fix.

You can suggest a new standardized place. Here's a link to the knowledge article:
It is also helpful to include a link to one of the images that you would like to correct so others can see what you are writing about.0
