  1. Alias REPEAT is not found

    Jim, Thank you. Patrick
  2. Alias REPEAT is not found

    Recently, my hard disk crashed and in the rebuilding process I reinstalled TMG v9.05 using "Run as Administrator". I'm using Win7 on a 64 bit computer. I also ran the TMG 9.05 installer an additional time using the repair option. I succeeded in unlocking the full version. However, in attempting to enter data, I am blocked. Screen captures are available. When I successively hit CANCEL I receive the message: Alias REPEAT is not found. When I select "Ignore" I receive the message:Variable REP_VALUE is not found.
  3. Change Tag group

    I inadvertently created a in the "Other event" group when I intednded to creat it in the "burial" group. It seems that I cannot merely delete the tag and start over. Is there a work around?
  4. WW1 Draft Registration Cards

    Have you looked at: http://tmgsome.com/Images/WW%20I%20Mititar...egistration.pdf
  5. Family Group sheet - Marriage?

    Michael and Terry, Thanks for your recommendations.
  6. Family Group sheet - Marriage?

    For example, when I select the report: Famiyl Group Sheet: Options: Misc.: BMDB events when missing & blanks for missing data the following is reported: F J M FRANK Birth: JUNE xx, 19xx Baltimore City, Baltimore Co., MD. Marriage? ___ __ ____ Am I able to designate a person as NEVER married to avoid the assumption that a marriage might be missing? Such as when the person died a bachelor.
  7. Is there a method to designate that a person was never married so as to prevent the Family Group sheet report from continually printing the "Marriage?" when I specify that I want to provide for omitted BMD events?
  8. Producing a Family Group Report in the French language

    Terry, Your answer was spot on. AND your step by step remedy was immediately effective. As you know, we use your Primer each month during TMG discussions with Sue Johnston and Kay Speaks. Many thanks, Patrick
  9. When I produce a Family Group Report in the French language, words such as: relationships Père; Mère; Fille; Fils and names of the 12 months translate while the four BMDB remain in English. Birth, Marriage, Death, Burial instead of French. La naissance, le Mariage, la Mort, l'Ensevelissement What do I need to do to change this?
  10. What is the appropriate source type for a Declaration of Intent?
  11. Family Group Sheet options

    Form a focus group composed of the heads of each family that you wish to include in the report. Then from the FGS report select the current focus group in lieu of the current focus person. Select output to a word processer, include indexes of surnames and given names.
  12. Thanks. I have ordered your book and use your web site regularly.
  13. Does TMG v7.03 have an internal methodology to recognize plural sons and, or, daughters in the census witness sentences? If so, how do I turn it on? TMG v7.03 lists all the family’s sons or daughters separated by commas in the witness sentence. At this time, I edit the census witness sentence for each son/daughter when the census lists multiple sons and, or, daughters. As the witness sentence comes: [RF:son] was listed as a son in [R:Head of Family]'s household on the 1930 Census <[L]>. <[M3].> As I revise the witness sentence: [RF:son] were listed as sons in [R:Head of Family]'s household on the 1930 Census <[L]>. <[M3].> Alternatively, how do you handle this? Merry Christmas and a healthful New Year. Patrick
  14. Unmarried parents

    What methods are available for adding children of two known, but unmarried persons through a tag other than "Marriage"?
  15. Modify the Primary Name

    How do I Modify the Primary Name when I later learn that the Primary Name is different from the name that I entered when I initiated the person?
