  1. Old email address required to validate

    No, there isn't. It's not used for anything except to validate the serial number. Just leave it. Well, actually there is. You can buy a new serial number for TMG9. :-)
  2. Problem TMG or SS

    You're welcome. It's easy to forget these steps if you don't use them for a while.
  3. Problem TMG or SS

    Yes. In Data > Database section, when you set the Database, if you have more than one Data Set Second Site asks you which one to use. I think you need to go back to that section in Second Site and re-set the Database. If you are using Selected Tags in that same screen you will need to reset them after you change the Database setting.
  4. Problem TMG or SS

    Second Site will only recognize people in one Data Set. Which Data Set do you have it set to use? Is that the same one that you found 1711 people in?
  5. Focus Changes to Different Person after Tag Entry

    Thanks, Michael. It's passed for the moment, but if it recurs I'll follow your advice.
  6. Focus Changes to Different Person after Tag Entry

    Thanks, Jim. I closed and re-opened and it seemed to fix it so far. But I'm pretty sure I did that a few days ago and it came back. If it does again I'll try the re-install.
  7. I've found for the last few days that when I enter a Tag for the current focus person, when I close the Tag Entry Screen the focus shifts to a different person. It seems to be one person for a while, then a different one. Then in one case it didn't shift the focus, but when I tried to enter a new tag the ID# in the new Tag was that of the person it had been shifting to, not the person displayed as current focus person. Re-indexing hasn't helped. Is there a known fix for this?
  8. Source - Passport Application

    Yes, I don't see why not.
  9. Source - Passport Application

    Tom, I put "Passport Application" in both the [Record Type] and [Title] Elements. I'm not sure that's the best plan, but it seemed to work for me. The truth is, I pretty much ignore the Bibliography output, though I do use it for citations in my "outline" website where I include people who I've done little research on.
  10. Source - Passport Application

    You're Welcome, Tom.
  11. Source - Passport Application

    Tom, I use the Naturalization Record Source Type, which seemed to me to fit this source well. I've modified the Source Type as follows for all usage, not just for passport applications: FF: [SUBJECT]<, [SUFFIX]>, [RECORD TYPE], <[FILE NUMBER]>< ([DATE])>; [REPOSITORY], [REPOSITORY ADDRESS]<. [COMMENTS]><, [CD]> SF: <[SF GIVEN NAME] >[SUBJECT]<, [SUFFIX]>, [RECORD TYPE]< ([DATE])><, [CD]> Bib: [REPOSITORY ADDRESS], [REPOSITORY], [TITLE], [SUBJECT]<, [SUFFIX]>, [FILE NUMBER]< ([DATE])>. I totally rearranged the SF because I didn't like the way it worked. I've added the custom [SUFFIX] Source Element to many of my Source Types to get suffixes to display properly. I've added the custom [SF GIVEN NAME] Element to many Source Types so the given name can be displayed in the Short Footnote, for use when a surname occurs often in my data. I've added the standard Source Element [COMMENTS] to many of my Source Types, to record that I found the record on various online sites, or other notes.
  12. Judy, I think this would work: Create a "Marriage Hidden" tag or something like that, but make sure it's in the "Other Event" group, not in the "Marriage" Group. That way TMG will not recognize it as a marriage tag. Exclude the Sentences in this Tag so it will not appear in reports. Delete the current Marriage Tag, and replace it with your custom Tag so you don't loose your record of the marriage.
  13. Focus Groups

    Ruth, They are with all the other Project Files. By default, that is C:\Users\{user}\Documents\The Master Genealogist v7\Data\Projects, I think it is. You can see where it is in your case by going to Help > Access Folders and selecting the User Data item on the list that appears. Dismiss the warning and the user data folder on your system will open. The open the Projects subfolder (and any further subfolders if you have put your Projects in separate folders). The files you are looking for have names like {project name}_S.CDX and {project name}_O.DBF There's nothing really you can do with them. You can't really even read them with a database reader.
  14. Focus Groups

    Ruth, As I replied to your question on FB, if you look at the File Structure page on Lee Hoffman's site -- http://www.tmgtips.com/dbnames2.htm -- you can see in the TMG 5,6,7,8 section (yellow background) the S and O Project files are were the Focus Groups information is stored.

    Jeff, The first step I suggested was to use the List of Events report, based on a filter for citations to your four sources, to set a flag. Then use that flag in the List of People report to get the people who have events that cite one of the four sources. Do I need to spell this out in more detail? My caution was that the list of Events report will only find event tags with those citations. So if a person has a Name Tag or an Relationship tag that cites those sources, but no event tags that do, that person will be omitted.
