there was a typo in the first one I sent.
[P] was born <[M1]> <([D])> <[L]> <[M2]>

Are role doesn't really have to be a role per se. You can use roles to vary
your sentences in a tag.
My regular birth tag has various roles. One of them is Birth-Quak, using the
above sentence. And one of them is Birth-in. I have selected on my reports to
print "at" for place names but when only a state is known I want to use "in"
the my role Birth-in changes the sentence to reflect that.
You can of course also just create another tag for Birth-Quak which if you
have alot of Quaker births for a family you might want to do so that you can see
on the person view that you have the right sentence.
TMG lets you do the same thing alot of different ways.
You would also have to set up a Marriage-quak and Death-quak using the same
type of format.

Thanks for this info. I have a good CD for Pennsylvania meetings that gives
the actual words used which Hinshaw doesn't. I've used Ancestry Quaker info
from Hinshaw but I find it hard to find the info.
