OK, so what happens when your grand-kids pick up the geneaology habit 50
years from now and the place names have changed again?
They will not have learned anything about history and they won't be able to
find the place names on modern maps. So they go back and do all of the
research over again for them selves to find out why Grand-Pa made so many
What will they think then?
It pays to stay true to history and tell it the way that it really was when
it happened. Otherwise the entire future will be confused.

I use place names as they exist today so the present and future
generations can find the place on a modern map.
That's my story and I am sticking to it . . . your mileage will
