Replacing just the birth (or death) place or just the birth (or death) date in a merge.
Rachel Esther Allen said: When merging two people, sometimes I wish to keep the more detailed birth-place from one person, while retaining the specific birth date from the second person. (For example, one person may list only an approximate year, but an exact birth place, while the other person lists an exact-to-the-day birth date, but only a general birth place like "United States" or "California.") Currently, the birth date and birth place, or death date and place, are grouped together as one item. Thus, in a merge, I have to pick between Duplicate Person 1's birth date/place and Duplicate Person 2's birth date/place. (The same goes for death dates). If I could keep the death date from Person 1, but the death place from Person 2, all while on the merge page, it would make merging easier. Then, we do not have to write down the correct date/place and go edit the surviving person's information after the merge is completed.
