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!
