Preussen, Deutschland death records in Switzerland
I'm encountering a large number of indexed death/burial records for individuals who lived in Switzerland which are put in "Preussen, Deutschland", i.e. in Prussia in Germany. Following these to their source shows them all coming from the parish records of Sitterdorf, Thurgau, Switzerland. Since it is highly unlikely that so many from there died in a place hundreds of miles of away, it seems clear that this is an indexing error, caused by whatever source. I note that there is a Hohentannen near Sitterdorf, and also one in Prussia, and it is possible that the software just defaulted to the one in Prussia for some reason. Unfortunately, I've already seen examples of where a Family Search user, seeing the connection to Germany, has made some erroneous assumptions. In one case there were couples of very nearly the same names, one living in Germany, and the other in Thurgau, Switzerland, and someone assumed that they must be the same family, even though there are a number of conflicts in records for the two. It turns out that individual in the Switzerland family have a number of these false "Preussen, Deutschland" death records associated with them. I don't know how this can be fixed, but it is clearly causing problems as it currently is.
