I have a geography question. I have a branch of my family that lived in the suburb of Coventry, called Foleshill, in the 1840's. They lived on the street known as Alderman's green.
When I put in foreign place locations, in my tree, I like to put the current modern designation, with a separate note, if a border has changed.
In some records, Foleshill, is listed as being a part of Warwickshire, in more modern ones, it is listed as a part of West Midlands. I changed all mine to state Foleshill was in West Midlands. Before, I used Warwickshire.
Which is the modern, current and official designation? Is foleshill in Warwickshire or West Midlands. I'm a bit confused.
I would also like to know the same for Bedworth and Walsgrave, which used to be called Sowe, I believe.
I just want to be sure I'm using the proper modern location.
