Does anyone have a recommendation on which fact type to use for the Visitation data in England? 


It lists the date and place, but also other relationship data. 


Right now I have them in misc events but considering a custom CENS or RESI tag so I can see all the visitation data for all people in my database together.


Thanks for any input.

I'm not sure I would create a fact for visitation data. If anything, I'd use "Residence". The record of the visitation would be a reference. (I dislike creating fact types willy-nilly for every possible event. Others seem to like to create a special fact type any time someone breaks a fingernail.)
