Subject: RE: [TMG] Source Citing Problem

A somewhat clumsy work-around would be to make two birth tags, one with date
but no location, the other with location but no date. Cite each
appropriately. The only problem is that your report will read, "John Smith
was born in 1743. He was born in Orange County, Vermont." Not exactly
elegant, but you could adjust it in your word processor if desired. The
other problem would be that only one of these tags could be marked
"primary", even though both are correct and documented. Some report types
may allow only primary events.
