Notice that when matching a record in RM with FT, which contains a burial place (city, county, state, etc.) and place details (address, hospital, cemetery, etc.), that only the burial place information gets added to FT. The place details are not added. If my memory is correct, the match used to move both the place details and the burial place, e.g.: "Mount Hope Cemetery, Watertown, Codington, South Dakota, United States". Is my memory incorrect? If so, will a feature be added to carry the place details along with the burial place information?

You've never been able to send the place detail field to NFS or FT through RM. If you saw the cemetery or hospital added before you probably had them still listed in the place field and not split out into the place detail field.

The only reason we don't send the place details is because FamilySearch doesn't include them in the Standardized Place Name. That said not everything you see on FT is using a standardized place name. If you didn't standardized what you do have in RM it won't get added in a standardized format either. So basically we have a grey area here between what FamilySearch wants and what FamilySearch has.
