Liverpool Crew List - County Name

This may have been asked/answered before but I didn't have time to search almost 1500 threads.
The image I have now lists 'Co Down' as the birthplace. Do I key the 'Co' or just 'Down' or ??

from the keying guidelines:

8. If the record says Jackson County should I enter County?
No, only enter the name of the county, "Jackson" - unless the field help states otherwise. This is true whether you are entering the data into a general location field or a county field.

Hi wiedwoman and hornplayer,
I've been applying the rule of 'Key as Seen' so if it says 'Co Down' that's what I've been keying.

I believe that bit in the general keying standards about not keying the word County was added some time after we started work on the Liverpool Crew Lists project.

When the keying standards are updated they take immediate effect over all projects. Project specific instructions and support q/as still remain valid however.

Hi Paul,
Has a system been introduced yet whereby there is a flag that the Keying Standards have been changed? I know it's something that was requested years ago.

The easiest way is to click the "watch" button when logged in, you'll get an email when the page changes.
