      Tips from the Pros: Recording Locations

      from George G. Morgan

      For each of your ancestors' vital dates (birth, marriage and death), always
      record the precise location as it existed at the time of the event. That
      means listing the town, the county or parish, and the state for U.S. events.
      For foreign locations, the town, province, and county should be recorded.
      More important, because boundaries and jurisdictions change so much over
      time, make certain you have the correct county or state, or province, or
      country listed as it existed when the event occurred. This is important to
      you for purposes of locating copies of records and important for future
      researchers who want to confirm your research and obtain copies for
      themselves.
