I now understand your question.
The title of this field is Birth date or Death date. The place is not specified in the title. It is like that since 2011.
Well, it is not like that since 2011, because in the current version 5.1.3 you do not see WHEN a person lived in these introduction lines, only how old he/she was at death. It was I who suggested that the dates of birth and death should be added at the top, I did that some months ago and was very happy that you added this for the upcoming version, I’m very much looking forward to this improvement
If you want to have the place name too, please make a feature request.
You have this info in the birth or death event. Is it really needed ?
I the “toggle” option is available, so that I can see all information from start, I guess the place of birth and death is not really, really needed. I suppose it would mean a lot of additional scripting to add it?
I think the “problem” is actually something typical scandinavian, and affect primarely those of us who derive from farmers and commoners in the scandinavian countries. It is because of the “logic” in the naming system; the “surname” was always the firstname of the father with the addition of “son” or “daughter” depending on gender. Then, then first names was always inherited within the families, and there were surprisingly few first names they picked among. (Per Gummessons son would be called Gumme Persson, his son would be called Per Gummesson, his son would be called Gumme Persson and so on and on and on. In worst case, Gumme Persson could call his second son Gumme after himself, and then Gumme would be Gumme Gummesson who called his son Gumme Gummesson who called his son… yes, I think you get the picture)
As a result, you don’t have to have an extremely large family tree to end up with, like I have, 115 Per Persson and 93 Elin Persdotter in your database. It’s only the time and place of birth and death that helps to determine who is who.
But, as long as the “toggle” is optional, and I can get all information at the first browsing, then it should still work with only the dates at the top.
