That sounds like a good idea!
Thinking about how this would work--
- If you had multiple sources w/ excerpts for an event, you'd have to
individualize the sentence template by specifying the ID number of the
- Would there be a way to generalize this by specifying in the default
sentence template the excerpt for a particular type of source (if a source
of that type was cited for that event)? That way, if one always wanted the
excerpt for a particular type of source printed, it wouldn't be necessary
to modify each individual sentence.
[D], at the age of [A], [P] died <of [T]> [L]. <[PP] obituary read as
[P] appeared on < a census | the census of [DY]> [L] <, listed as [CE:CENSUS]>.
Just my thoughts-- always trying to make things easier.
