Re: Resolving place names - including the word "county" for county

Different strokes for different folks - I dislike the fact that about half the time I have to REMOVE the word county. For me, it is redundant and a bit messy to have the word County. For some addresses, with a long city name, plus possibly a Ward #, a long county name and a long state name, the address wraps. That's ugly in the timeline, IMHO.

I just wish that the databases were consistent. Sometimes on the same record, from the same census, one line will have "USA" and another will have "United States" and yet another will have nothing. That should be a relatively simple programming fix.
