Garry-I also tried that new "beta" idea and switched back immediately. You do not have to use that-I hope we are not forced to in the future either. Like you, I prefer to add the actual date the census page was taken and enter the county and delete "country". If all the census decades were done the same way, perhaps I would let "country" stay there but it is not at all the same. Sometimes United States of America is there, sometimes USA and sometimes no country at all. It is just too erratic. I feel the same about the dates. Only the 1940 census uses 1 April 1940-the others only use the year. Again, if all were the same, maybe I would let the automatic date stay there but since no census decade is treated the same, I prefer to use my interpretation. Actually, the only time I use for example 1 April is in the 1840 census since that is the beginning date for that census and there are no dates associated with each page.
