Q: Is the correct way to enter Marion Co.IO, Marion, IO as the instructions state not to enter Co. and one would also leave put the Co. for any other counties mentioned. Will researchers realize that it is a county and not a town if done this way. pclesle
- A: We do not key the word county or co. You are correct to enter as Marion, IO. It will be up to the researchers to figure out if it is a city, or county. -- Wiedwoman 23:11, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
