When creating a few narritive reports, I am noticing that in a few different families the children are missing. It seems very sporadic. I select a start person and think click the option - ancestors and children.

Example:
7. Juanita Virginia Jackson was born on 17 Oct 1912 in Terra Alta, Preston, West Virginia, United States.
Wade Allen Graham and Juanita Virginia Jackson had the following children:
i.
ii.
iii.
iv.
3 v. Patricia Louise Graham, born 8 Nov 1935, Reedsville, Preston, West Virginia, United States.

As you can see the only child is "v".

Example:
Garrett Shulte and Anna M. (Catharine) had the following children:
i.
37 ii. Mary W. Shulte, born 1832, Hanover, Prussia (Germany).
iii. Mary C. Elizabeth Shulte was born in Hanover, Prussia (Germany).
iv. Catherine "Kate" Shulte was born in Oldtown, Allegany, MD.
v. George M. Shulte was born in Maryland.

In this example only "i" is missing.

If the children do not have any birth or death facts then they will not appear if you do not have a default sentence template for that.

Go to:
Narrative Report Settings
Click on Options button
Under
Sentence Template for people with no entered facts.
Add
[person] was born (date unknown).

Thank you Renee. I made this change and it gave me missing children. Thanks for the quick response.
