  1. My old laptop crashed and I need to install TMG 7.04 onto my new Windows 8 laptop. I know there is a way to recover my registration key as well, but don't recall how to go about that. I just need to get to the install program, do the install, and register the key after I am told how to do this. Thanks in advance.
  2. Death & Burial Events/Dates

    I have at least 2 cases where children were born after father's death. Of course, the father's death was accidental.
  3. Before set up v7 into win 7 32bit

    I have no problem with Word 10 on my Win 7 laptop.
  4. V7 Still using 32 bit?

    My laptop is Windows 7 64-bit but I have lots of programs, includeed TMG 7, running in 32-bit mode on it. As a matter of fact, I've also run TMG8 beta on it.
  5. The Future for TMG

    I was cleaning out an old cabinet and found the floppies for pre-release demo of TMG v.96d and the TMGDemo disk for v1.0. Also have 1.1, 1.2, 1.2A, 2.0, 2.2, 2.3, as well as 4.0, 5.0, 6.0..... Currently running v7.04 Gold on Vista desktop and Windows 7 laptop, both running on 64 bit OS. I no longer have a computer that has a floppy drive, so they go in the trash bin. Cannot recycle them. Let's see what v8.0 has to offer.
  6. Backup Error

    That worked. Thanks.
  7. Backup Error

    I just tried to do a backup of one of my projects and got the following error message: OLE error code 0x8004054 class not registered 35 MENUOBJTMG.MBACKUPWIZARD. Backup working correctly the last time I backed up. What do I need to do correct this situation? Thanks in Advance.
  8. American Townships

    Roy; The same goes for here in Wisconsin. Most of my relatives were born on farms. For instance my father was born on a farm and his birth was recorded as "Brooklyn Township" in "Washburn County" so that's how I entered it. That being Brooklyn Township was entered in the city field as "Brooklyn Township". I had been doing it that way since version 04.d.
  9. Clear Filter

    Thanks Virginia. So easy when you know how.
  10. Clear Filter

    I was updating my 2nd great-grandfather (who is also my 3rd great-grandfather) with a census tag and when I clicked OK, the tag didn't show up. I went to other relatives and none of the census or military tags and other tags showed. I then noticed next to the DATE header there was a FILTERED header. I checked HELP to find out how to get rid of the FILTERED header and it displayed that I should click EDIT and click CLEAR TAG FILTER. All well and good, except, the only things that show are: Delete person, Move person, Edit tag, Delete tag, and Find a person. All of other choices are gray'd out. The question is: how do I go about being able to clear that FILTERED header?? Thanks.
  11. As I went through the tag types, I discovered that there was no tag for recording land purchases and homesteading. I noticed somewhere in examples that someone had recorded land records. I am assuming that that tag was a custom tag, however having never created a custom tag I have no idea where to start. Could someone possibly send me a template that I could use to start a custom tag? Thanks. Duane I. Smith
  12. Ofter much investigation as to why my pictures won't show , I have found out that my pictures in PICS under TMG on my new computer is looking for .BMP and all of my pics are .JPG. How can I change TMG to to look for .JPG? I've tried to find a way to change the pictures to .BMP but I'm not allowed to do that either. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
  13. I have about 25 to 30 cases where children from prior marriages are adopted by succeeding spouses. I am having difficulty trying to figure how these cases should be recorded. I also have a case where a sibling adopts an illegitimate child from his brother's daughter. The baby is recorded as natural birth to mother but needs to be recorded as adopted by uncle. Doesn't seem to be easily done. Thanks for any help along this line.
  14. Two other persons have asked me to participate in a new (to me) and older (to them) project. They both use FTM 2009, I sent them a detailed descendant report from my grandparents (lots of new information for them and they didn't want a GEDCOM file) and they will enter the info on one person's database and send the output to the other. Howsoever, after they get it entered, they would like me to verify the data I sent. There will also be information that I don't have. They'd like me to tell them if I want a report or a GEDCOM file (by email). Now for the challenge. If I ask for a GEDCOM file and I try to merge, how do I get rid of the exact duplicates easily? This project will likely go on for a few months, and I will likely have to do the merge more than once. I will need to send them great-grandparents descendants down to my grandparents and then my GG-g'parents down to my g-g'parents. That's how they want it. Seems they didn't want a 40 page report all at once. Thanks a bunch in advance for you help.
  15. Burial Report

    Thanks Terry. It looks like it is working OK.
