A question for the pros.
Which is the accepted practice of adding the county of birthplace to a profile with regard to the date of birth? The county as it was at the time of birth or the county as it is today?
The profile example does not really fit the question above, however it does ask pretty much the same question
Andrew Moorman-175, was born in 1744, in Virginia.
Family Data Collection at Ancestry have this record on file in Provo, listing Louisa County, Virginia. Louisa (1742) was formed from Hanover County (1721) which was formed from New Kent County (1654).
WikiTree has New Kent County as the county of birth. Does all this matter to me? Not really, however for those who don't know the timeline of counties it could be confusing. It was to me until I read up on it.
