Re: Facts - Residence & Address

Hmmm... I'm confused now. I thought GEDCOM had both address and residence:

ADDR {ADDRESS}: =
The contemporary place, usually required for postal purposes, of an individual, a submitter of information, a repository, a business, a school, or a company.

RESI {RESIDENCE}: =
The act of dwelling at an address for a period of time.

As I read the GEDCOM standards, Address seems to be a "noun" (i.e. a place) and Residence seems to be a "verb" (i.e. the act of dwelling). So again, I wonder if it is the difference between "general" and "specific."
