Platser som inte hittas av Geneanet?

Jag har t.ex två händelser där platsen är angiven som 'Estland'. Även den platsen flaggas som felaktig av Geneanet.
(Och många andra platser där jag lättare kan förstå problem med att dom inte hittas).

Men vllka regler gäller för hur platser ska anges för att hittas av Geneanet? Något annat språk än svenska? Kan jag använda gamla tyska namn på orter i Estland (jag får många felmeddelanden av Geneanet på dessa orter även om Google Maps inte har några problem att hitta dem)?

Hoppas på snabbt svar
Dagge

Kan Du ge oss exempel på gamla tyska ortsnamn i Estland, så att vi kan titta på detta?

Jag har en liten ort som hette Jewe på tyska. Jag tror att orten idag heter Järve (eller möjligen Kotla-Järve).

Större orter som Dorpat (idag Tartu) får jag också flaggade som att dom inte kan hittas av Google Maps.

Please tell me if you can't speak English and I'll ask our Swedish assistant to help again.

Former names of small places are not recognized by Google Maps.

Could you please try to enter "Jewe (Kohtla-Järve), Estonia" and "Dorpat (Tartu), Estonia"?

Thanks for the suggestion and I will try it later. I will report back here.

(I am a bit hesitant to not use the older names which are used in historical sources.)

I have now changed the name of most places I use in genanet.

That does not change the number of places that genanet says are not allowed by Google maps - that number is still 29.
The list showing that the, not allowed, place names has not been changed. It still shows all the names it previously showed even as all/most of these names are changed.

For many of the names I changed I used your suggestion - 'old german name (Estonian name), german province namn, (Estonian name), ... and so on. Some of the place I changed to full Estonians names, but that does not seem to help at all.

Hope you can find a solution,
Dag

The number of places not mapped is now 24 and I can't see some places like "old german name (Estonian name)" anymore. Can you confirm that it's all correct now?

Hi jyb,

I can confirm that the list of places not mapped now is 24.

But I still have some wonderings.

- Several days after I had tried to update the place names, the list of places never changed and still showed 29 names. I was even logged out of geneanet for almost 24 hours and hoped the list would be updated. But when I logged in again the number of places was still 29 and I wrote my last question. Is there a way to force the list to be updated?

- When I logged in after your last answer and noted that the number of places had changed to 24, I noted that the language was set to german and I changed it back to swedish. Does the language specified change how you should name the places?

- Even after the place names has been updated there are not any new flags shown on the map (as far as I can see).

I have tried to update many of place names in error and are now waiting for the list to update. I better understand how to specify the place names now but may still have some questions.

Thanks a lot for all your help,
Dag

- No, there's no way to force the list to be updated. You must wait for the servers to reflect the updates.

- No, the language specified does not change how you should name the places.

Hi jyb,

The servers does not seem to update the list of places very often. This time it has been no changes in the list even that is more than 24 hours since I changed most entries. And the list is just now showing 24 entries.

My previous message when the list was at 29 entries there was no update for several days, maybe up to a week, until the number of places was updated.

Do you still have problems with place names that should be recognized and which are not?

I have got som more place name specifications to work. But yes, I still have some problems.

I did change most of place specifications more than two days ago but I can't know if any of my changes are accepted or not. The list still reports 24 values in error and shows the previous values (of which most were changed days ago).

How long time do you say it should take before the servers will update the list with the changed values?

The problem is that the list showing the place names in error does not update.
It shows the previous values before they were updated
