Wim - An alternative would be to construct your own birth sentence for the
child and use the ID number for the name that you wished to us instead of
allowing for automatic generation.

Hi Chi

Unfortunately not. This happens in narratives when referring to the parents
of an individual. I have asked for a feature on the beta-list where you were
allowed to 'construct' your own display of parent-names but I didn't get a
lot of support on that. Another option could be to have more choices on the
Report Options View.

What you can do is omit these parent-names from reports. On the Report
Options View, select All under "Content for", then select "Omit" in the
Parents-box.

Gr. Wim
