  1. Many thanks Terry. I incorrectly applied to the TMG downunder group and I am now trying to subscribe to the main one....which you suggested. I appreciate your help Bil
  2. Many thanks Terry and Jim....I really appreciate your help. I shall try and experiment with some of the possible applications that you have suggested. I do have Trend and it is possible that I need to close it down while I reinstall TMG. Anyway, thank you both so much for your suggestions Bil
  3. I have uninstalled TMG and then reinstalled it. At first it went ok but the next time I opened it it went really slow....like half and hour to open! Any help would be appreciated, thanks
  4. Hi. I just purchased a new computer (Windows 11) and I am having troubles installing TMG (gold v 9.05). I have all the data restored (I think!) but it takes nearly 30 minutes to download and open. It used to open almost straight away. Any thoughts on what I can do to solve this problem please?
  5. Thanks Terry. I can print list of descendants who are living only and I can print their spouses...unfortunately this also includes the non-living spouses. As far as planning for a reunion I will go through and erase by hand the non-living spouses. Thanks to all for your help Bil
  6. Thanks for your help and patience! It worked if I do not tick the descendants box at the very bottom....lists all descendants that are living. However, if I tick the spouses box (because I would like to know numbers to invite to reunion) it also lists non-living spouses (eventhough, they have an N in their flag). If I do not tick the spouse box at the very bottom of the page...I can get only Living ancestors...which is good....but I don't get spouses. Any thoughts please? Bil
  7. Thanks John for your suggestions. However, it is still not working. I am frustrated and confused because I think I have done everything as you and Terry have suggested. It is still displaying the non-living descendants after I put in your suggestion "Living does not equal N". I then went and checked the individual non-living people that it displays and they have N as their tag. Thanks for any tips Bil
  8. Thanks Terry. I checked and found the [?] flag on the living people. However, with the non-living the flag is an [N]. In the report of List of people I changed setting to [?] as you suggested and it worked for one ancestor (ie it listed only the living) which was good.....but for most of the other ancestors that I have tried it lists some of the dead (but not all!). I have checked the relevant flags and they have an [N]. Is there a way to ONLY have the living printed? And, why does it work for some and not others? I have no doubt that I am the problem, but I am really trying to get on top of this! I suppose another question related to this: is there anyway to print ONLY the non-living descendants? I would have thought: "is a descendant" of [iD] [AND] LIVING = equals to [N] Is that correct? Many thanks Bil
  9. Hi I am getting frustrated trying to view a list of Living people in my TMG. I go to List of people. In the first line "is a descendant of" [3] (my ancestor) "AND" next line: "LIVING" "equals to=" "Y" "END" Then the message "No people meet the conditions of the filter"! (Yet there are many who are deceased!) Can anyone give me clear step-by-step instructions how to get just the living descendants please? I can print ALL descendants, but I am trying to get a list of ONLY the living to work out reunion invitation list numbers. Many thanks Bil
  10. Thanks Michael...I appreciate that.
  11. Thanks Jim. How do you know? bil
  12. Sorry to be a bother. I am trying to find out what edition I have....I go to the "About TMG " and it simply says :Gold edition v 8.08.0000 copyright 2015" However, I cannot find whether it is UK or US edition. Thanks bil
  13. Once again thank you Terry and Michael! bil
  14. I have TMG Gold vs 8.08. When I click "Check for update" it says "Your software is up to date" I know there is a version 9, so what is going wrong here? Thanks for any suggestions bil
  15. Thanks Terry for your much valued answers and explanations to my questions. You have clarified the TMG position for me very well. Thank you! Hi Michael. I appreciate your answers too and have taken them on board. I feel a bit better knowing what the actual current position is and feel hopeful for the future after your comments. I am trying to get the Vs 9 license and so hopefully will be able to continue using TMG for some time to come! Many thanks bil
