Re: Census entry if away from home

I agree with Mike. I also enter the census for the individual exactly as it shows on the census form. If I feel that I need to, I enter a note on the individual's census record pointing to the information for the census record of the family of that person. Sometimes I also add a note to the census ...

Edit/delete stored place names.

Made a basic mistake in the marriage entry. I put a wrong spelling of a place name and unfortunately saved it.Now when I start typing a place name this wrong spelling keeps appearing. Is there a way to delete this from the saved place names?

Thanks

Yes the path is correct. This problem does not occur everytime I try to save an image.
Since posting the question I have tried to save an image and was able to do so.
