{{man note|NOTE|If you search for a place in GeoNames that you already have in your database, the search results may return some entries with a red strikethrough. This indicates that those places are already enclosed by the current place and cannot be selected. }}
:: The Type column is provide for informational use only, to help the user determine a bit more about the found place. The GeoNames types are not always obvious; the type starts with one of 'A', 'P', or 'S' for 'Administrative place', 'Populated place', or 'Spot' respectively. You can restrict the returned search matches to desired categories with the matching Checkboxes (see below). The remaining part of the type field for GeoNames can be decoded from [http://www.geonames.org/export/codes.html| http://www.geonames.org/export/codes.html], if desired.
* {{man labelcheckbox|0|Populated}} checkbox. If you check this setting, 'Populated Places' (typically cities, towns, villages etc.) will be returned for a GeoNames search. This setting does not affect a local database search. This is initially enabled, as it allows the search to return what most people expect for a city type search.* {{man labelcheckbox|0|Admin}} checkbox. If you check this setting, 'Administrative Places' (countries, states, regions etc.) will be returned for a GeoNames search. This setting does not affect a local database search. . This is initially enabled, as it allows the search to return what most people expect for a county, state, country type search.* {{man labelcheckbox|0|Spot}} checkbox. If you check this setting, 'Spots' (typically farms, buildings, graveyards, churches etc.) will be returned for a GeoNames search. This setting does not affect a local database search. This is initially disabled, as most place searches don't go to this level of detail.
* {{man button|Help}} button. This brings up this web page.
* {{man button|Find}} button. This performs a search for the place indicated in the {{man label|Title}} field. The search is performed in two stages.
* {{man button|Edit}} button. If no suitable places are found, the user can use this to advance directly to the result/edit screen. This can occur if the place you are searching for is too detailed, for example 'My Estate, Paris, TX' or '123 Mains St., Paris, TX'. Since such detailed information is not going to be found in the GeoNames search, you have to edit it manually.
* {{man button|Next Place}} button. This causes the Gramplet to advance to the next incomplete Place in the Gramps Places list. Incomplete places are missing any of the Latitude/Longitude or Place Type data. If a place is found that is not used by any Event or encloses another place, you will get a dialog popup message suggesting that the place be deleted.
