Using Points To Line (Data Management) Tool to make migration routes

I have a data from obituaries which my students have created currently in csv format.  In each feature there is a city of birth and a city of death.  I plan to geocode the points when I add them to ArcGIS based upon these two attributes.  I would like to crate a polyline from these points which will demonstrate the path from birth to death for each person.  In the end I would like to have a polyline for each person that illustrates, essentially the path of their life.  Is there a better way to accomplish this than to use the Points To Line (Data Management) tool?  If not, what is the best workflow for this?
