Many thanks sir. Got it. Just to reiterate the thought process...the release happened in the year x ...they migrated in some year y and this y is somewhere lying between x and x+35. Since y lies before x+35 use of past perfect is apt. Right?

Is it similar to the rule where two events happen in the past, the latter takes the past perfect and the former takes simple past?
