Thank you for correcting the titles on the Kalmar Parishes. Please check out Lonneberga[edit source]

I have been redoing the breadcrumbs for Kalmar Parishes today. In order to have 5th links working I have been using the title from the URL. However, there were so very many of the titles that were different...(having a small "p" in Parish, or beginning with "Kalmar: " then the parish name, or the URL title had left out the county name (Kalmar,) or the punctuation was different that other titles, etc.

I had spot checked around the parish names as I started and found the majority had the above named differences. Then as I was finishing up the last 4th of the parishes I found the URL's were once again more consistent with other county's URL's and was plesantly surprised, but very puzzled until I checked the history and saw that you had also been working in Kalmar today, correcting the titles.

First off: THANK YOU. I do appreciate them now being more consistent with the way most others are written.

Second: Because the titles were changed, that made the breadcrumb 5th parish links RED for all those titles that you corrected (because I had entered titles matching the URS's before you changed them).

Third: I am in the process of correcting all the breadcrumbs in Kamar again, so they match the corrected titles making the links functional again. I am grateful I noticed the titles had changed so I knew to check out the breadcrumb links.

Fourth: I am hoping that RogersBA is Barbara Rogers, who is listed as Executive Secretary. If so, I would like direction/permission to correct a URL/title myself (if it is appropriate) so whenever I come across one that is inconsistent with the way the others are written, then updated breadcrumbs will be more appropriate and the links will stay good.

I'm sorry this has become so long. I wrote this in your talk box because you were the one that had been making the corrections. If I should be directing this request to Danielle Batson, just let me know. Thank you for letting me check this out with you.
