Historic place names

If I want admit the name of the birth- or deathplace of a late ancestor, f.e. from the 18th century, it is not possible to write the historic place names. They are not accepted by geni. But it is not historically correct to use the actual placenames. F.e. the state Germany first existed since 1871 and the todays province/Bundesland names did not exist before. I am always very frustrated an angry, if I had to write the actual names for times earlier in history.

Please I beg to change this.
