I have done a quick search for an answer to my question, without results.
When estimating locations, what is the preferred format? When someone has a family and future generations have family in the same area, it might be an assumption that the original person was born there.
Do you enter the name of the town, the name of the county, the name of the country? Or leave it blank?
Previously I have entered it as 'Probably Surrey, England', omitting the town. This has been corrected on a few recently to 'Surrey, England', This may be incorrect as the person may have originated from Kent, England, just next door, or from even further afield, say Devon or Cornwall.
If leaving it blank, the only reference point is the children's births, but this is more accurate than saying the person was born in Surrey, England.
Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere.
