When I have an address listed for somebody and that person moves, I have found that I want to keep the address but cannot change it to a Residence tag.
Rather than re-enter all the data in a new Residence tag everytime somebody changes their address, I created a new tag type called AddressOld or something
like that. Faced with a new address, and I simply change the tag type on the old address tag, put a date range in the old tag, then enter the new, current
address in a new Address tag.
