I have the following sentence template for the immigration fact:

 

Sentence template: [person] immigrated< [Date]>< to [Place:last]>< via [PlaceDetails]>.

 

My immigration fact has the following data:

Date: 28 Sep 1882

Place: New York, New York, United States

Place Details: Castle Island, ship State of Indiana

 

The sentence I get is:

Bruce McGregor immigrated on 28 Sep 1882 to in United States via Castle Island, ship State of Indiana.

 

While the automatic insertion of "on" looks OK for the date, you immigrate to a place, not in a place.  Is there some way I can get rid of that word "in"?

OK, I should have read the excellent help document before posting, instead of after! <_<

 

The answer is to add :plain to the place:

[person] immigrated< [Date]>< to [Place:last:plain]>< via [PlaceDetails]>.
