Historical Place Names

Classification: Query
Can someone provide guidance on the FTM 2012 feature for using historical place names? My family is from the US Virgin Islands, but they were called the Danish West Indies until 1917. I have hundreds of records from 1680-1917 and I don't want my reports to say "U.S. Virgin Islands" for them. While I can just ignore the place name resolution feature and manually map them, is there some way I can associate the place with the modern place and yet keep my reports clean? I also have this problem with New York colony around 1750. Has anyone handled this well?
