So far, I have mostly been trying to add migration and location categories to my ancestors who migrated to Australia from the United Kingdom. I also have quite a few migrant ancestors from Europe. I have given then geography categories in South Australia and the ship/voyage they arrived on, but I am not so good on 19th century European geography nor any language other than English.
For example, Carl Wilhelm Klingner (Klingner-4) is currently described as Born 12 Jul 1826 in Semmelwitz, Silesia, Prussia in the data. I doubt they are the words he used for his place of birth. I expect it was more like Schlesien, Preussen.
A bit of exploring in Wikipedia suggests that Semmelwitz might be the place that is now Zębowice, Lower Silesian Voivodeship.
So my questions are what are the correct geography and migration categories to find his family and fellow migrants? Secondly, should the data fields for his birth be changed too?
Should I put him in [[Category: Prussian Immigrants to Australia]] or is that the old name style that is being phased out? Does he belong in [[Category: German Immigrants to South Australia]] at all, or would he be considered Polish and not German (or even Silesian and neither Polish nor German)? He appears to belong in a subcategory of [[Category: Immigrants to South Australia]] that doesn't exist yet, and I don't know what names should be used to create it.
