International Places Project Index

Every person is born somewhere, marries, lives, works and dies somewhere. Places are a key component to family history research. This project aims to be the starting point in your search for a place on Geni to discover more about your ancestors. If a place you are looking for is not listed, and you cannot find a project on the place then you may consider creating a new project for that place and adding it to this index.

UP TO FIRST GOLD LINE IS AN EXPERIMENT TO DEMONSTRATE A FORMAT FOR PLACES PROJECT Comments welcome (combining my proposal and Erica's)
