I noticed really strange text in some reports I printed coming from census templates. I listened to the webinar on sentence templates and looked at the help file on template language, and I am still confused.

 

This is the default template I have for the 1900 Census Fact for the wife role: [C=F, 10,110][00035:First] was listed as [Head of Family]'s wife on the 1900 Census <[Place]>. <[M3].>.

 

This is the resulting sentence that I see: [C=F, 10,110][00035:First] was listed as 's wife on the 1900 Census in Nueces County, Texas. [M3]..

 

One thing I can see is I do not have a Head of Family in the census record, and when I add a role for Head of Family that solves that issue, but I don't understand what [C=F, 10,110][00035:First]  is all about.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

That's a template from TMG with variables and syntax unrecognised or unsupportable in the import process.
