Subject: [TMG] General sentence question
Date: Wed, 11 Feb 2009 15:28:21 -0800 (PST)
I frequently see questions on this list about how to make a sentence work for all situations. I am afraid I don't understand the problem, so am probably doing something wrong. When I need something different, I just do a local modification of the sentence to work for what I have. I also use the Memo field a lot to add additional notes, rather than expecting the global sentence to do it. What is wrong with this system?

This Birth Tag is a second non-Primary Tag using the "Another
Source"Role? That is, you have a normal Primary Birth Tag and then
the non-Primary Tag "follows it? I created this Role and the
Sentence as you noted in your earlier messages, but the result was as expected:
John Hoffman was born in 1872 in Mt. Sterling, Kentucky. Another
source says he was born in 1871 in Mt. Sterling, Kentucky.
In both Tags, the Principal Role field is used? That is, the second
is not assigned as a Witness. Are you assigning male and female
Sentences for the "Another Source" Role?
Hope this helps -
