"Place of Residence" to be added to the "Death"
It would be nice if you could add "Place of Residence" so a short name for it to be In the s box in "Death" that you already have.
Ex: My grandfather died at the Hotel Dieu Hospital Kingston, Ontario, Canada
But his place of Residence when he died was Lansdowne, Ontario, Canada
I just love ❤ working on my family tree and I readily love FamilySearch I am on here a lot.
thank you for the good job done on making it so essay to use.😊

"Place of Residence" of mother added to the "Birth"
It would be nice if you could add "Place of Residence" for the mother at the time of birth in the same box of "Birth" that you already have.
Ex: I was at born at the Hotel Dieu Hospital Kingston, Ontario, Canada
But my mother's place of Residence was Lansdowne, Ontario, Canada

I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron.
Just is passing ...
I understand your desire.
That Said ...
We really do not want to have the "Vitals" Section 'cluttered' with too much; and/or, too many parts ...
You can already achieve what you desire ...
For the "Death" record, in particular 'Place' of "Death" ...
'Place' = 'Hotel Dieu Hospital', Kingston, Ontario, Canada
[ Where: Standardised as either:
.. Kingston Township, Frontenac, Ontario, Canada; or,
.. City of Kingston, Frontenac, Ontario, Canada
.. whichever applies ]
And, included with the, Reason This Information Is Correct: as being:
late of, Lansdowne, Ontario, Canada
[ or, residence/resided/lived at time of Death was, Lansdowne, Ontario, Canada ]
Whatever you prefer ...
Plus, you can also include, in the Other Information Section, a specific Residence, of "Place of Death", if you so desire.
Just my thoughts.
I hope that this may help/assist, somewhat.
Nowadays, there's always a bit of debate about "place of birth" and "place of death", because most people do both of those things in hospitals, not at home. I'm lucky: the hospital was in the same town as my parents' residence when I was born, so I can just name that town as my place of birth. My spouse, on the other hand, was born in a hospital three towns over from his parents' home; which one counts as his birthplace?
I think the "most portable" solution (i.e., one that works regardless of the specifics) is to enter the specific event location (such as the hospital's town) under Vitals, and add a Residence fact under Other Information for the "home address". This would match the general historical practice of putting the parents' residence for the Birth event, and the location of the church for the Christening event, or of using the person's home address for Death and the graveyard's location for Burial.
You could, of course, do it the other way around: enter the "home address" under Vitals, and add the event location under Other. This would result in fewer oddly-located map pins in the Timeline view, but would require a bit more labeling or explanation.1
