An open-source place matcher for genealogy

I’ve developed an open-source place matcher for genealogy. It takes place texts provided in GEDCOM files and matches them to standardized place names. It’s pretty good :-). I’ll be giving a talk on it at RootsTech next week. The source code and database are freely available on Gitbub.

Thanks go to Ryan Knight for creating a web application to demonstrate it.
