Please fix the Wisconsin Death Index
Not sure where to report data issues so I choose here, since I happened to be here.
Please fix the Wisconsin Death Index. After 1/9/2022, someone updated it so the Death Date field displays ONLY YEAR as in:
NameElsie Bertha Madden
Death PlaceMarathon, Wisconsin, United States
Death Place (Original), Marathon, Wisconsin
Before that date, the death date was a real date with month and day - imagine that! I'm going to guess, because I like to, that someone accidentally toggled the field definition from mm/dd/yyyy to yyyy.
Also, I can ignore this but you may want to look into it. At the same time (I think), the Death Place was attempted to be tweaked so expand on the original, not so pretty data. While the intent is appreciated, at least one misinterpretation exists. Lots of Wisconsinites died in Marshfield, WI where a major hospital has been for some time. Your new translation shows this instead:
Death PlaceMarshall, Dane, Wisconsin Territory, United States
Death Place (Original)Mars, , Wisconsin
Mars, , Wisconsin is Marshfield FYI1
