Why just Caroline, Virginia

+2 votes
for Shores-266 records say he  was  born 1755  in  Caroline County. Virginia. Caroline Co  was  formed circa 1727. Why then  are choices that come from  wikitree for certain dates just say Caroline, Virginia and not  Caroline County but a  later  set  of dates uses the Caroline  County?

Those locations in the dropdown are from FamilySearch, who seem to like to drop the "County" from names.  There is nothing WikiTree can do.  Sorry.

Don't forget: you don't *have* to use those locations in that list.
