I am typing the place where my grandparents and their children grew up but I got a message that the place is not ‘standardised’. I know the place is right, so how do I sort this out please?
Welcome to the FamilySearch community and thank you for your question regarding Standardized places.
You can request that we add a missing place (such as a town, city, or church) to the FamilySearch database of standardized places but the majority of them are already included and it seems that your question indicates this.
If the place already exists in the FamilySearch database, location options will appear when you click onto the standardized place.
You will find all the information to follow in a knowledge article in which we have provided a link for you below.
You can view more knowledge articles in Help (the small circle around the question mark at top right of screen)> Help Centre.
I hope that we understood and provided information that answers your question. Thank you for using Community and we hope this link or the Help Centre provides the answers you seek.
If you need further help regarding this question, please reply directly to this answer/discussion.
I would like to thank you for your desire to seek out your ancestors and wish you joyful success as you do your family history work.
