A:

Matthew's Gospel clearly says that Bethlehem was the hometown of Mary and Joseph. When they began the return journey from Egypt after the death of Herod, it was to return to Bethlehem but Joseph was warned in a dream and they instead travelled to Nazareth in Galilee.

Luke's Gospel clearly says that Nazareth was the hometown of Mary and Joseph. When Jesus was about to be born, they travelled to Bethlehem in Judea for a census. A few days after the birth of Jesus, they returned to their hometown of Nazareth.
