JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Place of origin listed in Russian records #general

While searching through LDS microfilms of the Jewish community vital
records >from Simferopol, I found that a person's place of origin is often
a part of the record. For instance, a birth record in Simferopol will give
the parents' names and say the father is a townperson >from a place in
Kovno guberniya. Marriage and death records are similar.

Is this generally the actual birthplace of the individual or the most
recent residence before moving to the location where the record was made?
For instance, if someone was born in A, moved to B, and died in C, would
the death record list A or B?
