      Description

      Currently, the Creator Creation form has two fields, presumably for indicating the Areas in which a Creator began and ended ("Begin Area" and "End Area"). Attempts to use these fields to find corresponding Areas for the birth and death places of Graham Greene <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graham_Greene> resulted in no areas being found for "Berkhamsted", "Vevey", "Hertfordshire", "England", or even "Switzerland" or "United Kingdom".

      The backend for these fields should be updated to include a much larger list, perhaps by synchronizing the list with the list of areas available in the MusicBrainz project.
