Could anyone suggest the best way to customise a sentence to show that person A's spouse or child died on [date] [place]

 

Would anyone also be willing to show examples of their customised sentences. I am just starting to delve into this and I tend to learn quicker by being shown examples. Thank you

Are you sharing the spouse or child's death fact with them?

Yes, that is what I would like to do

 

Having now tried sharing the fact I have decided that I prefer not to do it that way,  so I will just go back to making a customised fact,. When using the customised sentence is there something like [Name:spouse] that would input the spouse's name.

If your using a Family Fact the options are: [couple], [spouse], [husband], and [wife]

 

If its a witness or shared fact you can use [ThisPerson]

 

On Facebook Laura Beeman is really good at giving you lots of suggestions on sentence templates.
