  1. As I suggested before, the marriage does not appear in any of the family or tree views. What shows up is the fact that they are recorded as parents of a child.
  2. The Tree view doesn't actually show marriages. The Family view will show the date and place of a marriage event. Is that what you see? Otherwise, both the Family view and Tree view will show a "spouse" if they have children together.
  3. Beetle, The auto-relationship tag is not recalculated automatically, because of the time it would take to do that all the time. One way to do that is to go to Preferences>Current Project Option > Other and un-check the Automatic "Relation" Tag, click Apply, then re-check that box.
  4. Beetle, You do that by making his Mother and Father tag non-primary. To do that, make him the focus, select the Father tag at the top, and click the * button or the * keyboard key, and confirm. Repeat for the Mother tag. This will move those tags to the main Tag Box below. It will also keep him from showing in any TMG reports as their child, or them as his parents. TMG is at its heart a genealogy program, and does not provide any simple ways to deal well with adopted children.
  5. Missing DLL

    I tried the WG support address, and got a reject because the mailbox is full.
  6. I would suggest an alternate method, which to me produces much better results because all the data you add to your project is entered according to your standards. I would: 1. Open your regular Project as normal. 2. Open the new Project in a separate instance of TMG. The easy way to do that is to find that Project at the bottom of the File menu in TMG and select it. When asked whether you want to close your current Project say No. 3. You now have two instances of TMG open, one with each Project. Arrange the two main TMG windows so you can see the essential parts of both. 4. Navigate to a person whose data you want to transfer in the Project that contains the imported GEDCOM, and create the same person if not already there in your regular Project. Open each Tag that contains data you want to transfer in the imported Project, and use Windows Copy and Paste to transfer each data item to the corresponding Tag in your regular Project. 5. Continue until you have transferred all the data for that person, then move to a new Person and repeat. Continue until all the data you want to transfer is entered in your regular Project. You will probably want to create some method for tracking which people's data you have already transferred. You could create a custom Flag in the imported Project, and set an Accent color based on that. Reset it for each person as you finish with them so the Accent color changes. Alternately, you could create a list of the people involved with the List of People report, and either print it and cross off people as you finish with them, or send it to a word processor and mark them off there.
  7. You're welcome, Tom.
  8. Tom, I use a custom "Government Record - All Purpose" Source Type with the following Templates: Full Footnote: [SUBJECT]<, [SUFFIX]><, [FILE NUMBER]><, [FILE DATE]>, [TITLE]<, [FILM]><, [REPOSITORY]><, [REPOSITORY ADDRESS]><, [COMMENTS]><, [CD]> Short Footnote: <[SF GIVEN NAME] >[SUBJECT]<, [SUFFIX]>, [TITLE]<, [CD]> Bibliography: [SUBJECT]<, [SUFFIX]>, [TITLE].< [FILM].>< [REPOSITORY].>< [REPOSITORY ADDRESS].> Note that the Source Element [SF GIVEN NAME] is a custom Source Element that repeats the given name, which is otherwise omitted in the short footnote. It's needed because I may find the same kind of record for several members of the same family with the same surname. Since this is a "splitter" type source with one Source defined for each application, no entry is required in the Citation other than any notes about how the record supports (or doesn't) the entry in the Tag.
  9. Children in Tag Box

    Thanks for letting me know, Muriel. That's one I've not seen before.
  10. Children in Tag Box

    Muriel, I suspect you can also see a red Filtered at the top left of the Tag Box. If so, right-click on any Tag in the Tag Box, and about half way down click on the line Filter For... In the sub-menu that appears, click on the line that has the check mark in front of it.
  11. Residence Tag Sentence Structure

    Morbius, The name of the Witness doesn't appear in the output for the simple reason that your Sentence doesn't use any variable for the Witness's name. Instead, it is specifying that the Principal's name be output. If you want the Witness's name you need to include a variable that will output it, such as the Witness variable [W] or the Subject variable . If you tell us what output you want for the two Witnesses we can suggest a Sentence that will produce it.
  12. Journal Report printing problem

    Judy, I've never seen this issue because I never send reports directly to printer. Instead I always send them to Word, where I generally do some editing, then use Word's built-in PDF output to create a PDF or print. You might try that solution.
  13. Source Report

    Now that you raise the question I find I have 30,476 names, with 58,057 citations, or 1.9 citations per name on average. I have 1,337 name tags with no citations, about half of them "standard" names that are there only to facilitate finding people who used alternate spellings of their surnames. I find I have on average 1.6 citations per event, and 1.5 per relationship tag. That's closer than I would have guessed.
  14. Source Report

    Michael, You wrote "... few people actually put citations on Name tags." I'm surprised if that's true. I probably have more citations in Name tags than any other tags.
  15. Children's Window

    The Children (and Siblings) windows display the "last viewed spouse" when there is more than one spouse. To change that, open the Family or Tree view to your ancestor. Then click the Next button at the lower left until the desired spouse appears. That then becomes the "last viewed spouse" and will appear in the Children and Siblings windows.
