I have used the exact place-names of occurrences, such as [[Massachusetts Bay Colony]], [[Province of Massachusetts Bay]], [[New Haven Colony]], British America before 1776 rather than USA, etc. Should I retain these names or should I enter just the current county, state, and USA in order that I conform to what others have entered.</span>

:Hello, Warren! Please, when entering place names in the four standard fields for each event in [[Form:Person]], try to use the current (usually Wikipedia's) names. That should ensure that your people will appear on the appropriate "/bdm" subpages for the places. Where the place had a different name, we encourage contributors to enter that in the less formal "Other places" field, which comes after the nation field; that will then appear in parentheses in the mini-biography and will be searchable. see [[Help:Place]] for links to some relevant pages. -- [[User:Robin Patterson|Robin Patterson]] ([[User talk:Robin Patterson|Talk]]) 09:09, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
