Perhaps its because I am not an American ---- but really, I cannot believe
there is so much discussion about place names ----- in PAF, there are 4
levels of place names, call them what you like ---- you should try (with
some amusement) fitting British or European place names into such a
regularised (American) view of place names (City - County - State -
Country) --- use the 4 levels (or less) sensibly to fit the circumstances
(but - always end with a country!). The tie to source records is not
provided by the structure of the place name but by the address of the source
repository for the event. And yes, I know of the focus/filter/custom report
feature to match this American ideal of place names --- but there are ways
around that.
