Make it Clear, Never Assume

I was helping a high school classmate with her son's 5 generation genealogy project. In one communication with her, I asked her if her Dad's family lived in or near Tennessee. After I hit send, I realized I should have clarified which Tennessee I was talking about. There is Tennessee the state and Tennessee the little town in the adjacent county.

Are you being precise in your use of locations?
