That is exactly what I had thought about doing. However, when I look at the
list of event templates, I don't see any template for childbirth and yet it is
an event that GENBOX creates. I expected that if I omit the birth event, it
will be omitted for everyone. I really don't want to do that as that will not
give me a true individual narrative.

TOP does create an individual narrative which includes the birth information for
the principal, but does not include the birth information for the children.
This is what I would like to see in GENBOX.
