Warwick County missing from Virginia county pick-lists

  • tmeconverse by tmeconverse

    Warwick County ceased to exist when Newport News City subsumed the county, but the older University of Virginia botany sheets indicate the old county name as the location. Should it be included in the pick list? I've been picking Newport News City, but I'm sure that there are many collection that will reference the defunct county.

    Personally, I've been skipping the county field in this case, and stating 'Warwick Co.' in the location field. I have a feeling that the big guys will be aware of this issue and will know what to do the info either way.

    I've been listing the county as "Newport News City" and putting Warwick County in the location field. it will all come out in the wash.
