Help correct place
I am not sure whether I am posting this on the correct forum but your Standard places options reflect Harare (formerly called Salisbury) in Zimbabwe (formerly called Southern Rhodesia then Rhodesia) as being in Mashonaland East. It is officially in Mashonaland West and one of the main cemetaries is called Warren Hills located off the main road to Bulawayo.0
You can add your own place names to the standardized list. It can be a bit dicey though. Go to any place where you create a standardized place name, say birth, death, etc. Edit so you get into the edit mode. You will se a small blue circle with a i on it. Click it and one of the options is a link with the text (If the correct place is not listed, consider adding it to our database of places.) I'm pretty sure I've copied the link here. Follow their directions.1
