How about we just suggest to Maxine that she click on the "archives"
link at the bottom of the page and search the archives. Not everyone has
been on the list forever and sometimes we just don't happen upon the
answer when we need it most.
Maxine, there are many tools to find a missing county. Use the geocoding
inside of RootsMagic 4; utilize place finder by just typing in the first
few letters of the place name and then browse down the list; or use a
third party lookup (google, GNIS, etc.) Or, you can add the place name
as you received it and, then I would create a to-do record for that
person to verify the place as time permits. You can find a source that
would clarify the location that had been entered.
