These comments answer the following questions:
- How do I preserve the original place name and still use the standardized place name selections?
- What is the difference between what is shown in the date and place fields and the standardized list?
- How do we preserve both the accurate date formats and place names?
- How do I get the children to show up sorted in birth order?
These and many other questions are answered in Gordon's comments. Please take time to read this rather long blog post and work through the examples given. It will clear up a lot of issues with the program.
