Caution When Merging Social Security Records

Census and Social Security records are pretty much the backbone of my documentation. They are great resources and I am grateful for them, however I have a caution to share with yah. The Social Security records give a Residence at time of death – this may not actually be the place of death. When you merge I think that the Residence may default to the place of death which could be incorrect. Just something to think of as you merge. What do you think?
