Georgia, Georgia on my mind

Please rename the Category 'Immigrants to Georgia' referring to the State in the USA to distinguish it from 'Immigrants to Georgia' referring to the country called Georgia. I suggest you call it 'Immigrants to Georgia (US)' so that it is unambiguous.  The category names have to be unique, so clashes like this need to be avoided.

I wonder if there is anyone who would belong to a category called "Immigrants from Georgia to Georgia"?

Aside from that, I agree, ambiguous category names are no fun.

Ambiguation has already been discussed with the Categorization Project. For Georgia, it was decided that the country would be listed as [[Category: Emigrants from Georgia (country)]] and [[Category:Immigrants to Georgia (country)]].
