If the instructions say to fix misspellings of place names, but it's unclear what the real name is?
Sorry for the confusing title; I ran out of room!
Basically, I'm doing an Irish batch ( [Part A][M3Z5-T5R] ) where the instructions say in regards to location: "You should expand abbreviations or correct misspellings when you can tell what the abbreviation stands for or what the correction should be to the spelling." Which seems awesome, but it's actually difficult.
Lots of the locations are fine, some are mildly misspelled (sometimes with odd abbreviations), but some are so wildly misspelled that I can't figure out where they are talking about.
This is a location that is supposedly in County Cavan, Ireland, 1850s. I see this as Deubawn or Denbawn, possibly Peubawn or Penbawn. However, there is NOTHING in the township listing for Cavan that ends in bawn. There is nothing in the locality listing that starts with Pe at all, so I went to the D's, and the closest I can find that MIGHT be this is Dennbane. Which seemed too far off, so I googled townships NEAR Cavan, and there was NOTHING even remotely like this, so I go back to the Dennbane. It doesn't seem right. But it's the closest. There's a strong accent and 19th century pronunciation and spelling rules possibly throwing off my interpretation, so what do I do? Do I put in Dennbane? Perhaps "Dennbane (?)" Leave it blank? Mark it unreadable? What?
