Each month, FamilySearch publishes a list of new changes and updates to the FamilySearch.org website. This list includes changes to Family Tree as well as other parts of FamilySearch.org. In some cases, these changes will also be published as individual articles where the need to do so exists.

FamilySearch: Standardized Places in England
The way FamilySearch standardizes places in England has changed a little. (When you enter a place in Family Tree, the system shows you a standard way to list the place. The standard format lists a more complete place and improves users’ search results.)
For places in England, you will be able to select the format that shows either England or the United Kingdom as the country, as in this example.
