Re: New user place/address advice
Michael - I would agree with your understandings for your Chicago examples.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
However, for my stuff, I have expanded the town-city element into two
to allow the use of suburb / town-city. For example instead of
"Chicago, Cook, Illinois, United States" I'd have (fictitious example)
"Downtown, Chicago, Cook, Illinois, United States" if I used the
suburb or ", Chicago, Cook, Illinois, United States" if I didn't have
a suburb and wanted to keep to a consistent number of "columns".
As for Wales, well, England, Wales & Scotland follow pretty much the
same pattern except that it's town-city / county / country, thus:
"Holy Trinity, Mostyn St., Llandudno, Caernarfonshire, Wales"
if you put the 2 parts of address into Place (this doesn't have a
Or, if you split:
"Holy Trinity, Mostyn St." for the address and
"Llandudno, Caernarfonshire, Wales" for the place (still with no suburb)
Obviously you can map the Welsh town-city / county / country onto the
US town-city / county / State / country by using an empty column, e.g.
"Llandudno, , Caernarfonshire, Wales" would be 4 columns lining up to
"Chicago, Cook, Illinois, United States"
(Whether you map the Welsh county onto the American county or the
American State is up to you but our county is usually the level below
the country so I'd map it onto the State. But that's me...)
Also with Wales, you have to decide whether to use the Welsh spellings
throughout history or use the contemporary spelling - usually English
- for the earlier events, which would give:
"Llandudno, , Carnarvonshire, Wales" in the 4 column form.
Ireland is different..... Oh so different....
Hope that helps,
