World Place Advisor has a gazetteer, or database, of OVER 3.3 Million place names from around the WORLD, plus US churches and cemeteries. The program uses this database to automatically check your genealogy files for place name typos, missing counties and other inaccuracies.

Not only that, World Place Finder will also give you the exact latitude and longitude of the place you are looking for so you can easily find it on a map! You could use your own map to see where your ancestors lived, or you can use the handy built-in link to Too large to download from the Internet, this gazetteer is available only on CD-ROM.

** GEDmark **
Just as a trademark secures ownership of a product, GEDmark places the author's stamp of ownership on every individual in a genealogy file. This means that even when data is incorporated into other family files or online databases, the author information goes with it.
By running your GEDCOM file through GEDmark, you are able to place author information on each individual in that file. This insures that no matter how many times your GEDCOM file is split, imported, exported or submitted, your authorship of the research is protected.
