Replace Location

This functions allows you to auto-correct abbreviations in location data fields, by replacing them with the expanded "State, Australia" format. It works on birth and death location fields (not marriage). Follow these steps:

  1. Click on the chosen report below.
  2. Scroll down the page and click on the blue button "Get Profiles".
  3. In the 3rd column (Replace), click on the button "Correct", this brings up an edit screen, similar to a merge screen.
  4. Scroll down this screen, you'll see the revised location data in the orange column.
  5. If there are no valid sources in the biography, add the Unsourced template with relevant state parameters. Many of these profiles will come from old GEDCOMS and may not have valid sources.
  6. "Save Changes" at the bottom of the page, the location field/s will be automatically updated.

The profiles on these reports have BDM locations that are not recognised as valid, eg. they may have a number as part of the location. As this means they will not appear on any other reports, they may have other suggestions, as well as their location field, that need correcting. They may need the Unsourced template with state parameter/s.
