It may seem tedious, but are all the locations spelled correctly in your genealogical database?

Double-checking can be a way to locate other errors, notice things that you’ve failed to follow up on, and perhaps see new avenues for research. It never hurts to clean up your genealogical database.

It’s Chariton County, Missouri–not Sheridan County.

Harford County, Maryland, does not have a “t” in it. Seriously.
