This seems broken, I have read the help file and it is not specific, I can only judge by the fact it is not giving me a list of places without a country to choose from with only a list of about 10% of the eligible entries being presented.

 

I can't get PLACECLEAN to add a Country as I would expect. As my research goes international I understandably I want to have countries on all my places. I would have expected a FULL list of all Places without a recognizable Country presented where I could select the ones I want updated with the new country value.

 

I have many entries without an eligible Country in the place but rootsmagic does not present these for updating.

I had a reply to this perceived problem over on Facebook so it is not broken, just smarter than a simple replace. This utility will not simply offer you a list of places without a Country if you enter "China" for example. The utility will only present places in your place list that it believes may be part of China.
