Since importing my GEDCOM file into TMG take days I
don't think I would lilk to do that again, so I could check and possibly
telle you the problems. Anyway it isn't all that relevant to Genbox anyway.

Here I agree with you that Tjerne and Mæhlum should have
been imported to the same level. It should see the extra comma and see it
as a misisng placename.
