In the case of the place my parents lived in in Texas, the post office and town was originally named Busk but the post office name had to be changed to Gouldbusk because there was already a Busk post office. And in another case in Georgia, the post office location for some people in Coffee County for a while was in Homerville in Clinch County so even a change of county which would have the effect of showing people living in Clinch County rather then in Coffee County. There are large numbers of flaws in this new purported "add info" thing. Another that I have seen mentioned is not being able to log people in the same census decade in two different locations. That happens many times and this should never be blocked. My great grandparents were recorded in two different counties in 1880 om Texas because they moved after being counted once and then wound up being counted again in the new location. And will that keep people who add hints from other trees from having the same census listed numerous times. I see that too.As an example the 1880 census will be listed for the same person 3 or 4 times and that comes from someone adding hints from other's trees several times. So I bet that will not be affected will it. Just the ability of the user to save a family in the same decade in different locations. And that is simplification? I think not.
