Description

To reproduce:
- Export some EAD that has creators with dates associated with them, so there is <bioghist><date>... information present.
- Import back into a fresh AtoM install

Result: The creator is imported but there are no dates associated with it
Expected result: The creator's dates get imported with it

Ultimately, this issue is a bit of a red herring right before a release.

I'm not sure when the dates of existence started getting added to the bioghist element - it's a nice idea, but it makes our export less standardized against the norm, and is now also causing problems in AtoM - reimporting causes the dates of existence to appear in the history of the related actor.

For now, to keep things simple, I suggest we simply remove the dates of existence of the actor from the EAD export. In the future, if it is desirable, we can consider how best to add them back in so that they can successfully roundtrip.
