Brudenell Lyndoch and Raglan, Lennox Co., Ontario, Canada
November 04, 2011 02:15PM
    
"Brudenell Lyndoch and Raglan" should be deleted. This is an amalgamated Municipality (comprised of the three listed geographic townships) in Renfrew County, not Lennox. As it is unpopulated, there is no need to move it to Renfrew. The restructuring of Geographic (historical) townships into their current Municipalities is being addressed seperately.

Thanks,
Michael

You should retain the old names somewhere in the string in case someone has an old specimen.

As per previous discussion http://www.mindat.org/mesg-7-211246.html, the new locality strings will look something like:

Brudenell Township, Brudenell Lyndoch and Raglan, Renfrew Co., Ontario, Canada
Lyndoch Township, Brudenell Lyndoch and Raglan, Renfrew Co., Ontario, Canada
Raglan Township, Brudenell Lyndoch and Raglan, Renfrew Co., Ontario, Canada

This retains geographic (historic, as they are now being referred to)) townships and provides current municipal divisions. Nothing lost, only added. I'm still looking to make sure that there aren't any problem areas where a geographic tp has been split into two or more municipalities, but for the most part this works seamlessly, and I'm making a list for Peter to implement. I'll post again in the thread above before anything major happens though.

Michael
