    This is just a matter of preference.

    If you are pulling the info from census documents, I personally would recommend simply documenting the residence at the time as a residence or census event. I would save the use of emigration/immigration events until you have source data relevant o the actual emigration/immigration event. Again, personally I always use emigration/immigration events in pairs.

    I have been doing genealogy stuff for many years, probably 30 or so, but this is still a matter of preference.

    However you choose to do this, be consistent! I have seen some big messes when a consistent practice isn’t followed.
