Location Suggestions

Location Suggestions are errors or warnings in the profile's Location Fields.

The causes range from:
  • typos in the birth, marriage, or death place entry,
  • incorrect data entered in the location fields such as numbers, punctuation or separators,
  • Gedcom import data issues, or
  • abbreviations.
WIkiTree Style & Guidelines mandate "using their location, not ours," which means that the name of the location may have changed over time, and need to use the location name when the person in the profile lived there. Use caution working on Location Too Early errors; it may be simple to remove that location, but you also need to check the correct name at that time in history.
