I agree with a comment on the question by @AmericanLuke:
My first thought is that "event" is way too broad. It won't be very
However, the term
residence turns up in quite a few questions so I think it could be useful.
I use frequency of terms being used as a proxy (and very rough) measure for whether they might be useful as tags. For me terms that could be used on too many or too few Q&As make poor tags for SE sites.
I can foresee our users filtering questions using it to expand their understanding of what
residence means to genealogists and family historians when thinking about things like:
- What is a residence?
- What is a residence event to a software package and GEDCOM?
- How to find a residence for someone between census collections?
These could be found by simply searching on the term but that wide net may lead to opening Q&As where residence is an aside rather than central. By tagging the subset of questions where the term is important we can quickly distinguish Q&As about residence from those that merely mention it.
