Why is the death date and death place fields not showing up on the open profile in the data fields?

However, it does show up in the edit field and in the public view.  I'm not talking about the biography part.

For example: in the case of [[Hemington-11|Henry Hemington]].  This question was already brought up in the G2G Foum and it was suggested that I try this direct route to you.  Hope you can help.  Thanks

HI Barbara,

It's because the Death Place field has the "intentionally blank because still living" status indicator checked. If you change it to uncertain or certain than the death date and place fields will show in the public view.

Thanks a lot Vincent.  I should have remembered that one.
