Looking for advice. New user with FH … coming from Rootsmagic.
Place and address setup (columns). I haven’t decided on how to use each. I am going through examples in my tree and see how they work with FH.
I have the following location …
St. Michael Church, 8237 South Shore Drive, Chicago, Cook, Illinois, United States.
If I lump the location only in Place or Address, I will need 6 columns. Name, street&number, city, county, state, and country. Correct?
If I split between place and address I would have 2 columns for address, and 4 columns for place. Correct?
Place: Chicago, Cook, Illinois, United States
Address: St. Michael Church, 8237 South Shore Drive
What if I have just the street & address (no name)? IE: 1234 Water St., Chicago, Cook, Illinois, United States. I would still need a leading entry ( , ) for name correct?
The entry would look like …
,1234 Water St., Chicago, Cook, Illinois, United States
Do I have a correct understanding?
Lastly … I do have ancestors in Wales which I have not researched yet. For proper locations in the UK (Wales) how many columns would I need for place if I put ALL the information in place?
How many columns in place and address if I split the location?
Any advice would be appreciated.
