Scottish or British[edit]

There seems to be a dispute occurring with Gareth Griffith-Jones vs Conormckee and 95.16.44.162 as to whether Doyle was Scottish or British. To avoid a perennial editing conflict on this I thought we should seek clarification here on the matter. Gareth Griffith-Jones also changed Conan Doyle's birthplace from "Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom" to "Edinburgh" which violates Template:Infobox person/doc, I have therefore reverted. It is not uncommon for notable individuals to be described as Scottish; that is a nationality after all. That's why we have a categorisation scheme Category:Scottish writers. British is not uncommon as well. What are other editors views on this matter? AusLondonder (talk) 17:04, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

I thank AusLondonder for adding this thread. I should merely like to point out that I was restoring the status quo that existed up to yesterday afternoon. Cheers! Gareth Griffith-Jones, The Welsh Buzzard (Talk) 17:33, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
