  1. Thanks, Terry. I like your [SF GIVEN NAME] and have added it to my custom Source Elements and have had occasion to use it twice.
  2. Have recently come across a few of the above applications related to deceased uncles. Suggestions would be appreciated as to wording for sources, citations, etc. Thanks. Tom
  3. Source - Passport Application

    Thanks Terry. I suppose I could then replace [Title] in BB with [Record Type] and get the same output result. Tom
  4. Source - Passport Application

    Terry - examining, and thinking about, your Source Elements, I have been wondering about something. In FF and SF you have the Source Element [RECORD TYPE] which, in my case, would be Passport Application. But in BiB instead of [RECORD TYPE] you have [TITLE]. If not Passenger Application what would I enter for [TITLE]?
  5. Source - Passport Application

    Terry - thanks very much for the reply. Greatly appreciated. Especially your custom Source Elements and your explanation as to why you created them. Hope you and your family stay safe and well during the remainder of these difficult and uncertain times. Tom
  6. Looking for suggestions for Source language regarding a Passport Application.
  7. Thanks Jim. That was the problem - the filter for primary events was on. Turned it off and everything is OK. Thanks again.
  8. Every time I load TMG, and sometimes during a long session, I must go to "File" --> "Preferences" --> "Program Options" --> "Tag Box" and click on "Show non-primary events", click "Apply" and then "OK". I have to repeat this frequently because "Show non-primary events" does not stay selected. I've followed a recommendation (be sure the desired Custom Layout name is in the Select layout field, edit the Comment, if any and click on the [Overwrite] button) numerous times over the last 3 months but every time I reload TMG I still need to go to "File" --> "Preferences" --> "Program Options" --> "Tag Box" and click on "Show non-primary events", click "Apply" and then "OK". "Show non-primary events" does not stay selected. I have tried other options but nothing works. Not a major problem but it is a nuisance. Any other recommendations?
  9. My List of People Report has 4 headings: Name, ID Number, Birth, and Death. When I print the Report the heading names are left justified but the data is right justified. Can the heading names be centered, or at least right justified to match the output. Could not find anything helpful in the Options. Thanks. Tom
  10. Thanks Michael. After carefully reading all of the comments, I think the best thing is to use the U. S. Standard Style. I think that will make my life easier. Tom
  11. Thanks Jim - will follow your advice about using City in level 3. I'm trying to understand UK references to what "appear" to be places so would appreciate more assistance. I have seen numerous references to Boroughs. Does/how does one record a Borough? Here is another reference to place in an 1871 census - residence: Civil Parish "St George the Martyr Southwark, London, England." In the same census - Registration district "St Saviour Southwark." Does any of this get recorded in a place name field, comment section, etc.? Thanks again, Tom
  12. I have been using TMG - USA for many years. Recently I have started researching my wife's family and found ancestors and cousins in England and Ireland. Therefor I want to set up a UK Style on the Master List and rename some (or all) of the 10 name labels. However, I am not familiar with the place names and have come across references to Borough, District, City, County, Civil Parish, Ecclesiastical Parish, Registration District, and others. Not wanting to reinvent the wheel, I hope someone can tell me what place name labels are used by TMG-UK users. Thanks. Tom
  13. Repost - List of Names

    Thanks Jim. Exactly what I needed. Tom
  14. Can a list of my 2nd cousins be generated?
