I have found LDS documentation for travel abroad for the more prosperous side of the family.
It does not seem proper to use the immigration fact for US citizens returning home. The customs documentation often gives the exact date of birth, the home address, the date of departure and city, and the date of arrival and city.
So I have refined the date of birth to a more exact date than available from the census.
Then I use the date of arrival and use that to document the residence. I use the description field for the residence fact with a sentence in [square brackets] such as [Returning from a cruise on the ship "Ship's name" sailing from Havana, Cuba on 1-FEB-1934 and arriving at The Port of New York on 4-FEB-1934.]
This technique works, but is there a better way to do it?
