Wrong Place Names for Germany
All that had been listed in in the South end of Rheinland (or Rheinprovinz) are now decreed SAARLAND.
Every microfilm ever filmed even after 1952 for that area are listed RHEINLAND or RHEINPROVINZ.
German Empire early to 1947? Wrong! Already reported and ignored. German Empire did NOT exist before February 1871 and ended Nov 9, 1918 (2 days before the end of world war 1 - Wilhelm abdicated and went into exile.
Saarland did NOT exist until Jan 1, 1957! The most of the area generally known as Saarland, existed as part of the Rheinland until 1918 then as Territory of the Saar Basin governed by France, until 1935, and returned to Germany as part of the Rheinland, and from 1947 until 1957 as Saar Protectorate by France.
Also Losheim am See did NOT exist until January 1972, part of Federal Republic of Germany's local levelpolitical reorganization. Church-wise, Britten and Losheim never joined together as Losheim am See.
I wonder about the areas of north part of the Rheinland and Westfalen, Baden and Wurttemberg, Niedersachsen vs Hanover, Mecklenburg vs Pommern.
Wiping out the mentions of Preußen is not acceptable. This name disappearing from the Catalog AND Place Standards. Prussia was a kingdom all the way to 1918 and as a mid-level government all the way to February 1947 before abolished in February 1947 by the Allied Forces occupying Germany.
