Hi Anne,

Genbox tries to assign place parts to various levels on input. I haven't
heard of it adding place levels, though. What is the full place name that
was in the GEDCOM file, and what is the full place name that Genbox shows?

This sounds like a problem with the capitalization routine. You can prevent
this from happening:
1) On the View menu, select "Preferences".
2) On the "Names" tab, clear the "Convert to initial caps" options for both
individual names and places.
3) Click the "Close" button.
4) Try your GEDCOM import again, into a new database.
