Hello, Paul --
If you haven't already, I encourage you to join the FHUG forum, search for previous discussions, and start a new one.
I took a fiction workshop once where everyone read drafts and then offered criticisms and suggestions to fix things that weren't working. There I learned that even if a writer didn't take the suggested advice for a fix, the suggestion is still of value because it gives you something to bounce your own idea off of. "No, I don't want to do X, Y will work better."
If prompted, I suspect people will talk about the advantages and disadvantages of doing things their way. I also have some cases where I need to do a combo One-Name and One-Place study and have been pondering how best to handle the data, so I'd be interested in hearing what you've done so far. The forum is probably best for a discussion like that.
I agree with Adrian that it helps to get some data into the program and play with it to see what things look like. For people doing their own family research, I often suggest that they enter records from an associate or neighbor when doing a test-drive, to avoid the monotony of always entering the same family data over and over again.
I hope you can have a fruitful discussion that will help you clarify your thoughts.
