Populating additional information not found in census.
While reviewing the Canada, Prairie Provinces Census, 1926 I was disappointed to find that birth locations were incorrect in a significant manner. This occurs on the "results pages". A location would have a country added to it. In many cases these were errors. Some examples are:
Alta. - An abbreviation that has been used for Alberta, Canada for over 100 years. The results page then turns this into Alta, Finnmark, Norway. (Yes, Alta is a location in Norway also.)
Galicia - A historical location in Eastern Europe, now part of Ukraine. The results page turns this into Galicia, Spain. (Yes, Galicia is also in Spain.)
Bukowina - The results page turns this into Bukowina, Ukraine, Soviet Union. Bukowina was part of Romania during the 1926 census and continued until annexed by the Soviet Union in 1940.
Please consider not populating additional information not actually found in the census images.
I'd blame auto-standardization, except I can't re-create this. I tell it to search the collection for (any) place exactly equal to "Alta, Finnmark, Norway", and it comes up with 155,565 results -- with no sign of "Finnmark" or "Norway" anywhere (that I can find). (Talk about "for some unknown value of exact"....)
The Bukowina example is only sort of an error: it's pointing to the right geographic location, just not the right time period or jurisdiction. You can console yourself that at least on FS, you can correct this, unlike, say, on MyHeritage, where I have to enter my grandparents' birthplaces as Slovakia, even though no such country had ever existed yet back then.0
