"You are approaching this issue as if the PNA is some kind of straight-jacket that you are constrained by. I don't share that view. Again, I consider it as nothing more than a tool, like a spell checker - to assist me; and if I want to enter a place name outside of the constraints of the PNA, so be it."

Silverfox, I don't think he is approaching it as a straight jacket. My feeling is he is approaching it as something that needs to be improved and he is just asking them to improve it

Even though you don't see it as a "big deal" a lot of other users do see this as a problem area --- If you disagree with that statement just go back and look at all the threads and posts dealing with this ----- and count the number of threads you yourself have commented on dealing with this issue and count the number of posts you have made dealing with the issue

PS DATES AND PLACES ARE THE GUTS OF ANY GENEALOGY SYSTEM AND USERS SHOULD NOT HAVE TO LOOK THE OTHER WAY [OR DEVELOP WORKAROUNDS] WHEN IT COMES TO CORRECTLY DOCUMENTING THE PLACES
