Answer: When you are in Family Tree Maker 2012, you start by selecting Tools and then Options
In the bottom right hand corner, you will see the Place Options section:
Make sure that you have a check next to “Check place authority when entering place names” and then select the country your ancestors are from. I assume that all of my ancestors are mostly from the USA, so I don’t need to see that in every place.
Now when I look at places, I will see, for example, Virginia instead of Virginia, USA. It’s a little bit shorter and easier to read.
