How do I get Geneva Switzerland to show up in search

Postby stevegraff » Thu Mar 10, 2011 21:09:32

When I added a birth place for Geneva Switzerland, I did not get a list of selections to resolve the map location. What do I need for an input to get the list of cities that usually appears? The following did not work:
Geneva Switzerland
Geneva CH
Geneva CHE

Hi Steve

the geolocation database that GenJ Geo uses right now is totally outdated and didn't even start with a complete country list.

There is a thread somewhere on a prototype view that uses google services to render locations - that's the only real future. I have no time to maintain and improve the old GeoView so atm it's only ymmv (your mileage might vary) with that thing until someone picks this up and polishes a new view.

Regards
Nils
