One update: When entering places, when you click the globe icon, a popup window comes up showing two lists of places.  The first list is from the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) from here: usgs.gov, for all of the US.  This is the entire set of data, but limited to inhabited places, and church names (as sometimes a church name will give you information if a town name is not found).

The second list below that is the list of matching places that are already entered in trees here on this website.

Clicking either will insert the information back into the city, county, and state entry fields.
