Say I have a place like Evergreen Cemetery, Springville, Utah, Utah, United States.


In RootsMagic it would be


Place Details: Evergreen Cemetery

Place: Springville, Utah, Utah, United States


In FamilySearch it would be:

Evergreen Cemetery, Springville, Utah, Utah, United States.



Familysearch likes to combine Place details and Place into a Actual place. It would be nice if RootsMagic would combine the Place details and the Place onto a single line when comparing with FamilySearch and moving data over.

Confirming sending both the Place Details and Place fields to Family Tree is on the enhancement request list. When FamilySearch Family Tree first started they didn't want what is considered Place Details. They are trying to standardize the place names. I think people using Family Tree are showing what they want. Have no idea what FamilySearch's feelings are about that right now.
