Recently, FamilySearch has invested its resources in "updating" locations on its indexed records to facilitate searches for some. It has led to unintended consequences as now these indices are extremely inaccurate. I have found people who were born in Lithuania to have been indexed as being born in Thailand. Others came from Galicia, Austria and are indexed as Galicia, Spain. This is a major flaw that should not be ignored.
Please consider returning all indexed records to their original entries. If the original source has a spelling error, it should still be indexed the way it was written. What should change is the algorithm that allows for a broader Soundex search.
