I would like to add my 2 cents. I suggest that the longitude and latitude be
used. I know the ones related to the major cities I am researching and it
would be an easy matter for me to associate the smaller ones to them. Would
also eliminate a step when using the ShtetlSeeker at the Jewishgen site.
Using the Longitude and Latitude also helps when there are spelling variants
in the town names.
