Create a stable URI schema for linking to places in the Place Research tool

In the past, I could create links to a place in the Place Research tool just by knowing its place ID. However, that schema for links is now broken. For example: https://www.familysearch.org/research... no longer works.

I find that tool extremely useful, but it would be even more useful if there were a reliable way to link to places there. I'm not asking for something guaranteed to work for eternity, but if the team could decide on a schema they can stick with for the next 5-10 years, that would be amazingly helpful.

(Or if there already is a reliable new URI schema I just haven't figured out yet, I would welcome some education on its format.)
