Often I see the use of Virginia Counties before the county existed. For example, saying born in Orange County in 1721, but Orange did not exist until 1734.
I want to avoid editors ignorantly changing it back to Orange because they for example see sources that cite Orange incorrectly.
I've been adding a parenthetical phrase to the birth data field, e.g., Spotsylvania County (later Orange), Colony of Virginia, to alert potential editors to not make the change. However, parenthesis in the location field will generate a db_error.
Alternatively, I could put this info in the body of the text, but I'm concerned it would not as easily be noticed in a long profile.
What is the best method of cueing editors to not introduce this error again?
