Hi,

 

I am trying to decide the best way to document someone who made two attempts to emigrate to the US, being deported on the first attempt.

 

I use the standard emigrate, event-misc and immigrate tags for this situation.  These tags produce an individual narrative that has this basic structure.

 

He emigrated on Date #1 from xx.

He was deported on Date #2 at yy.

 

He emigrated on Date #3 from xx.

He immigrated on Date #4 to yy.

 

This is acceptable but is a bit lumbering.  (Ignoring the grammar that needs correction.) 

 

Note that I use "emigrate" for "attempted to emigrate".  Is that something I should consider handling differently?

 

Does anyone have a different way to handle this situation?  Perhaps something that produces a smoother individual narrate?

 

Thanks for your help!

 

Brian
