First of all, are you sure you mean MN and not WI??

If so, is it not:

Mindoro, La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA

???

Secondly:

If that is the correct name, why do you want to enter an alternative name for the spelling variation?

I can see entering two places if one name was for that place in 1700 and another name for that place in 1900; but I wouldn't usually enter different spellings in two different facts.

Fourth,

You can do what you want to by

1) One by one,or
2) copying and pasting the facts.

To copy and paste:

Make a fact (incl source citation) for a family member, then right-click copy and right-click paste. You can paste to parents, spouses, siblings and/or children of your selected person. You can move to another person and paste the copied fact (with source citation) to that person's parents, spouses, siblings, and/or children.

Does this answer your question?
