I am a long term TMG user but am one of those who thought they would update when they had time to get back into their genealogy research. I was away while all the upgrade/finishing emails were coming through so did not get in to upgrade on time and now can't find a Version 9 anywhere. I started having some trouble with reports when I looked at my V7 again and so looked at what programs others were looking at. I downloaded the trial of Family Historian and imported my TMG project. When I did the straight TMG import - all people came over with their relationships intact but no dates, places, events, memos etc. Just names really. I sent a copy of the backup to Family Historian who were very helpful but eventually gave me the following message: "The developers have taken a look at your file and in 'debug' mode encounter an error where a Memo file is missing, they are also getting the same error if they try to import your Project into TMG 9. Which they think suggests a problem with the file you sent us or your database, as you are seeing the same problem on import on your system this would suggest it may be a problem with your database I am afraid."
Tonight I tried it as a GEDCOM file import. This time the Memos, dates & places came through - but no relationships or events with more than one person linked eg. no marriages. No-one is a descendant or ancestor!
I did get an error message when I saved as the Gedcom; 'Memo file c:\Users\hn\Documents\The Master Genealogistv7\Projects\MYHUNTERPROJECT_G.FPT is missing or is invalid. 4056 G_EVENT
(it gives multiple messages of the same except the event changes (there are 9 numbered events mentioned).
Any help very gratefully received as I'm a bit of a techno failure and don't want to have to re-enter my 9000 odd people & their life events! Thanks ahunterclan
