I have an individual who travelled by ship to England and stayed 3 years upon returning to Australia. I wish to record the details but am unsure what event to do so under. It was not immigration/emigration. Is there a tag or event within GEDCOM I would use?
If you want to find what tags are valid in a Gedcom the Gedcom standards for v5.5 are available as a pdf download from HERE. As already stated there is no purpose build tag for this. The standard does allow for non-standard tags so that may be something worth exploring BUT bear in mind that they will be unique to you.
Record the details of the stay in England with the RESI (resides at) tag.
Specify the period of stay as a date using the FROM/TO format to whatever level of detail you know it.
Include any details of the travel to, or travel from England in a NOTE.
Don't forget to source it.
