  1. Undesirable Reminder

    Thanks so much. Issue RESOLVED.
  2. I am recently having a frequent "Reminder" message. When I click on a previously-created "Residence" record (this record has an "*" indicating it is "primary"), I get a newly-occurring window "Reminder - The place of residence. Use Address instead for a mailing address." This is an undesirable reminder. I can click on the upper corner "X" to close this window; however, the next time I open this "Residence" record, I continue to get the same "Reminder." How do I stop this undesirable "Reminder?" Thanks.
  3. Backup Recovery

    Please close. Issue RESOLVED.
  4. Backup Recovery

    Thanks for your patience, Jim. Stay safe. I tried to be diligent; but, your point is made: check/re-check.
  5. Backup Recovery

    I just completed the suggested "first step." This time when the process asked "Are you sure? (to restore the backup to the current project)", I chose Yes. This time the processing was almost instantaneous and it went back to the unchanged current project. However, the actions, which I want to negate are still present. I will appreciate your further comments/guidance. Thanks. Henry
  6. Hello, Jim Byrum. I have opened my primary project, Ince.pjc. After making some changes, which I want to reject, I choose to restore my backup from yesterday. However, during this process I get the interrupting message "Someone else is using the selected project and it is not possible to restore it". Being the only user of my computer, I don't understand what might be causing this issue. I have opened other projects and (without making any changes), I have successfully recovered their most recent backups. However, attempting the same Restore procedure on the Ince.pjc project fails as stated. I would appreciate your (or other forum user's) comments/guidance. Thanks. Henry Ince tmgince@cfl.rr.com
  7. Problem during Optimize

    This issue is resolved. Thanks to all for your help. Terry, I did find some of the remaining Placename entries do still show nothing (no links) when Events is selected. However, I did find how to delete any not wanted. When I Select that entry; choose Edit, then "blank" the existing entry/entries, choose OK. Then, I get the prompt "You have deleted all of the elements of this place and all links to it will be deleted. OK?" This being what I want, I choose OK and the Place entry is removed/deleted.
  8. Problem during Optimize

    Thanks for that direction, Terry. I have used that to edit these Place records that appear at the beginning -- blank City, State, etc. -- so that all of them show nothing in the "Events" for these records. How do I delete/remove these Place records, since they are no longer used in the project?
  9. Problem during Optimize

    I ran File/Maintenance/Reindex, which completed without error. Then, before running any other "Optimize" analysis, I opened my Master Place List. There I found quite a few entries -- at the beginning -- which had entries containing information without any City, State, Country, etc. data. I have then selected "Edit" on the first entry, which shows how it appears in the Place record. Is there a way to determine the number of this "Place" record or where this Place entry is used, i.e., is there more than one record where this "Place" is used? I suspect that these early Place records, which do not at least have a Country entry should be considered for removal; but, I would want to know where/how often the place is used before doing that. Is there a "minimum" recommended entry which should be used for any Place record, such as "Country?" Thanks for further consideration/guidance.
  10. I am running TMG v9.05 under Windows 10x64. I have recently encountered an error during updating a person record. Therefore, I have run Optimize and encountered the following message: "Index file: 'r:...\my documents\my files\genealogy\projects\tmg version 9\ince\ince_ppv.cdx tag 'Placename' is corrupted. Please rebuild it." 4457 PCMHKSUM. Of course, I must admit that I have no idea where to start in "rebuilding" the "Placename" file. I would appreciate any guidance.
  11. Missing image during backup

    This issue is resolved. Thanks.
  12. I'm using TMG Ver 9.05 under Windows 10x64. During backup of my current project, I encounter an error message in the log "f:\Henry's Data\My Documents\My Files\genealogy\Other Images\Renee Boyer\Woodward\Anna Smith Bible.jpg". However, this appears to involve an image from my work during a previous session on a different project. I do not have a Drive F:\ attached. How can I determine the source causing this error? Thanks.

  13. Well, I just solved my own issue, but thanks for any consideration. I merely selected Mother-Bio as Primary and Bonita immediately showed up as Karen's mother in the Type window as desired.
  14. In my project on my laptop, I have a person (Karen) who has her father defined, but not her mother. So I select Create Person and select the Mother option. This new person (Bonita) is created and the Mother-Bio tag is created in Karen's record; however, Bonita does not appear in Karen's Type window. So, I double-click on the Mother option in the Type window and enter the newly-created ID# for Bonita as requested. This creates a duplicate Mother-Bio entry for Karen, but Bonita still does not show up in Karen's Type window. I acknowledge that I have used this latter procedure on this same project on my desktop and it works as expected, There the layout is identified as Desktop and here I am using a layout defined as Laptop so that the displayed data fits best. I just don't understand why I don't seem to be able to get Bonita to show up as Karen's mother in Karen's Type window. Help.
  15. Managing a data set in TMG 9.05

    Hello Terry, Thanks for the new info. I followed these directions and it worked exactly as you directed. Thanks so much for your guidance and patience.
