Additional input fields WikiTree profile creation?

Not saying we should add more, but If you were to add an additional input field to the WikiTree profile creation form, what would it be? (Just for fun question, not advocating we do this)




Immigration Date

Cause of Death

laughBurial, divorce, and as you suggest, residence(s) by year, immigration year 

I'd go for Burial.  Surprising how many Maritimes Canadians seem to have died in the New England states yet had the remains shipped home to be buried with the rest of the family.

Which brings up the interesting question of were they actually shipped by ship, or some other method?  I saw one newspaper article that made me think the remains were coming home by train.

Oftentimes bodies were packed with salt to preserve them for the period required for the shipping "home".

correcting typo

Thanks Melanie!  That's interesting!
A burial field on the profile could help with those cases where the death is in a location far removed from the burial location.  I also noticed in the 19th century many US residents who passed away in Florida sent the remains back to New England or Chicago or Ohio.
