ASSIGNMENT
  1. Use U.S. Cities Galore to lookup a county for some city in your PAF database.
  2. Form a GEDCOM of your PAF database and load it into U.S. Cities Galore, perhaps at a FHC, and look at the corrections it finds automatically.
  3. Sort the data by the New Locations column in Reverse Sort (alphabetized on largest jurisdictions) and look for problem locations.
  4. Use the Search and Replace feature in the New Locations column -- find some corrections needed, correct one, and save the correction to the clipboard.  Then highlight several that need that correction and replace them all at once.
  5. Click on Save/Save As and save your GEDCOM with a new name, e.g. [name]-2005-06-30a so you don't wipe out the earlier file until you are sure you have what you want.
