Hi Denise, I might be wrong, but I don't think you can.  I can think of something that might help you, though.

You can look at the Categories and find the one for the place you are targeting.  All profiles of people who have that category added to their profile will be listed there.  Some may have had an association with the place, although they were not born there and didn't die there.  Some who were born or died there may not be included if the category has not been added to their profiles.  Despite that, you should get a large number of profiles that do meet your criteria.

If you start at Category: Regions, you will be able to drill down to the level you are looking for.  I hope this is helpful - perhaps someone else will have a better answer for you.

For Death places you can always check the cemetery categories. Now that is if the pm on the profiles put the category for the cemetery in which the person was buried in. But for birth, you can check out the category for that particular city and county in which they were born in. Again, this is if the pm added the category to the profile. 

So like Gaile said, start at Category: Regions and work your way through to which area you want the most. If you can't find what you are looking for you can always create a free space and then branch out from your own profiles or message someone in the category project for help :)
