Facts - Residence & Address

Posted: 11 Jan 2013 8:02PM GMT
Classification: Query
Can anyone shed light on the different uses of these two fact categories? The U. S. Federal Census and U. S. Public Records Index (from ancestry databases) use "Residence" category by default. Each fact has the same fields, of course -- Date, Place, Description.

I think it would be both "fun" and interesting to capture information about houses that my ancestors (and my own family) have lived in, so address information would be helpful. When possible, I can imagine attaching a photograph of the home as well. My own daughter is interested in places we have lived, and I have my own curiosity about places previous generations lived. Would this more appropriately fit a "residence" fact or an "address" fact? Or is there even yet another fact category that I am missing that would be more appropriate?

This is part of a larger question I have about some sort of reference about the kinds of information that might be recommended to capture within the various fact categories. Is anyone aware of such a resource -- a catalog of the categories or other reference about what to capture where?

Thanks for the thoughts...
