Since the birth/childbirth events are directional, the citations tied to one
are tied to the other. Therefore, if you want the citations to appear only
once on your report, I'm pretty sure that you are just going to have to do
some deleting in your word processor. CheriC

I thought that might be the case but hoped I had missed something and there
was a way to do this on a single report basis.
Could you or the list give me input on how to cite the following or combine
the citations for Sally, the mother? Sally and James Coker had 9 children,
proof from the quitclaim deed. Each child has a citation with excerpted text
for the birth event and conversely, Sally and James Coker have citations for
each child for the childbirth event. But I only need one citation for the
childbirth event of all of the children with the excerpted text for Sally
and James Coker, especially for the family group report; and I do not need
individual citations for each of the children on this report.
Is there a way to do this in Genbox or do I just exclude all citations and
add this one in my edit?
