I've never actually noticed that the Individual preview report lacks the person's parents and there doesn't seem to be a way of sticking them in.  I only noticed this with an unamed child, the details of whom I want to send to the co-author so that we can discuss the interpretaion of the sources. What I want is "(Child) Sewall, child of John Doe Sewall and Jean Doe Sewall, was born ..."

 

Individual Narrative of (Child) Sewall

(Child) SEWALL was born circa 27 August 1825 in Boston, Massachusetts.  He/she died on 15 September 1825 in Boston, Massachusetts.

 

Now there must be such a report lurking there, which I haven't yet discovered, or that I'm too senile to work out how to construct one.

 

John

Make sure that the <[PAR]> variable is in the Birth sentence. You can tack it on to the end if that works for you or use some other arrangement.

On the basis that every child has a PAr, that seems logical. Thank you Jim.

The default Birth sentences do not include the [PAR] variable. While adding the variable works in the Individual Detail report, it adds excess verbiage in the Journal report.
