Sure, in the absence of a "stillbirth" event type, there are different approaches. But having just a death event without a corresponding birth implies that the date of birth is unknown. Having a birth event implies a live birth. I think having a "stillbirth" event would be the best way to avoid any possible confusion or ambiguity.

I think the biggest omission from the list of events is "stillbirth". You can always create your own event types. However, this is a death-like event that Gramps should recognize. That is, in places where a date of death is listed, this date should be listed.
I know I'm very inexperienced at this so I thought I'd ask. Sorry if this sounds like I'm insensitive, I"m not, just unfamiliar with it.

Is it important that it be recognized as such and not simply as a passing (death)?
