I would like to say: Person arrived in Australia, landing in Melbourne on Date, on the Vessel "GoodShip"; he|she departed from Liverpool.
Are there too many entries in this Sentence?
All the Underline Entries of course are the variables and most of the time only part of the information is available for me to insert.
Appreciate any help. I am prepared to re-insert any of the information into my Database to make this work.

ie "departed from Liverpool on the Goodship"
[person] immigrated< [Date]>< to [Place:plain]>< [PlaceDetails]><, [Person:HeShe]>< [Desc]>.

[person] departed<[Place:plain]>< on the [Desc] and landed in
Liverpool for the place and ship name in the description.
[Place:plain]< on [Date:plain]>.
Enter Melbourne, Australia in the place or enter Melbourne in the description field and add [Desc] into the sentence.
You may need to enable the description for the fact on the Fact type list.
Sort the Emigration fact just above the Immigration fact. Put all notes and link all sources to the Immigration fact.

Emigration and immigration are simply different ways of looking at the same event
Keep the "Emigration" and "Immigration" facts for those who have already used or prefer them, but I would like to see a new, specialized fact: the dual purpose "Migration".
This would have additional data fields to enable us say that:
[person] migrated on the <mode> which left from < [1st place]> on <1st date> and arrived in <[2nd place]> on <[2nd date]>.
Mode: In most cases the name of a ship but in the modern era it could be “by aircraft”.
In such a case, the date of arrival would be all that is required.
A possible enhancement: A “tick box” option which, if activated, would calculate the number of days involved between departure and arrival and add text:
- ….. and arrived in <[place]> on <[date]>, after a voyage of XX days.
