While Yorkshire has been seen as a major supplier of labor for the weaving trade in the north of
England, the fact that my grandmother also lived briefly in the central part of the country suggests that
migration in two stages, in her case it involved a shift from domestic to factory work, may still have been
common in the 1870s
.

D?
IMO, the fact that my grandmother lived in the central part of the country does not suggest migration itself so I would go with C or D.
D seems better? OA?

This is more about the placement of the modifier that is set off between commas regarding the grandmother’s shift in the first stage from domestic to factory work.

A. suggests that migration in two stages, in her case it involved a shift from domestic to factory work, may still have been common in the 1870s -- The modifier is itself a full-fledged IC that is ungrammatically conjugated within the sub- clause. This turns out be a run-on

B. suggests that migration in two stages may still have been common in the 1870s, in her case it involved a shift from domestic to factory work; ….. Same as in B.

C. suggesting how migration in two stages, in her case a shift from domestic to factory work, may still have been common in the 1870s. …. 1.there is no comma before suggesting. It implies that country is suggesting something. 2. The choice is a fragment without a proper verb the subject ‘the fact’.

D. suggests how migration in two stages may still have been common in the 1870s, her case a shift from domestic to factory work.----It is not clear whether ‘her case a shift from domestic to factory work, is just one stage of the migration or represents both migrations.

E. suggests that migration in two stages, in her case involving a shift from domestic to factory work, may still have been common in the 1870s --- although it is a bit wordy, still , I feel it forth-right in sticking to the original intentions. The word ,involving' signifies that there is some more stage to come, which is the intent of the original.

E to me is the choice

A. suggests that migration in two stages, in her case it involved a shift from domestic to factory work, may still have been common in the 1870s : Incorrect. What does "it" refers to?
B. suggests that migration in two stages may still have been common in the 1870s, in her case it involved a shift from domestic to factory work : Incorrect. Her case should modify migration.
C. suggesting how migration in two stages, in her case a shift from domestic to factory work, may still have been common in the 1870s : Incorrect. suggesting incorrectly modifies country
D. suggests how migration in two stages may still have been common in the 1870s, her case a shift from domestic to factory work: Incorrect. Same reason as B
E. suggests that migration in two stages, in her case involving a shift from domestic to factory work, may still have been common in the 1870s: Correct.

Here suggests --> subjective word
So C and D are kicked out...
E -present continuous is not needed i guess..

Between A and B.
A seems to be correct... but IMO B seems to be more parallel.
I went with B.

Guys pool ur suggestions...

You rejected B only to accept it; seems a typo, right?

Nevertheless, what do you think "in her case involving a shift from domestic to factory work" refers to?
"involving a shift from X to Y"..what do you think this expression modifies?

Ya thanks Bull..
It was a typo...

in her case involving a shift from domestic to factory work

-ING modifier not preceded by a comma modifies preceding noun....

So i suppose, here in this sentence involving a shift from domestic to factory work modifies her which in turn goes to grandma

But my doubt is

While Yorkshire has been seen as a major supplier of labor for the weaving trade in the north of
England, the fact that my grandmother also lived briefly in the central part of the country suggests that
migration in two stages, in her case it involved a shift from domestic to factory work, may still have been
common in the 1870s.

Both verbs need not be parallel here???
Also verb sequencing troubled me...

Though i'm not sure with i went with B... its just a guess :(

E right in terms of intention and noun modifier placement. IMO, E. Rest are too wordy or incorrect in tense
