  1. Thank you so much, Terry! Either of those will work beautifully. It's so hard to see the forest for the trees sometimes. Doris
  2. I'm finding a need to add a "child" rather than a son or daughter. I see this option on the Add Person Type screen, but it is grayed out. Is there a way to activate it? Doris Wheeler
  3. Out to GED file

    Hi Paul, I do this a lot. For me, the easiest way is to create a new Project using the List of People report, then running a Gedcom from that. Doris
  4. TMGU Find/Replace - Reposting

    Thank you, John, as always! This worked like a charm and saved me gobs of time and probably lots of oversights.
  5. History Tags

    Thank you, Michael, for that valuable info about beesoft. I had no idea. Also am I correct in stating that the History tag does not transfer via Gedcom or direct software to other companies (in case you ever need to leave TMG)? Doris
  6. TMGU Find/Replace - Reposting

    Thanks, svhous. I have done that, but I'm trying to remove an asterisk from the names of these people. TMGU doesn't seem to have that feature, unless I'm missing something. Doris
  7. Is there a way to target the Name field to remove the asterisk I have attached to the first name of every immigrant in my database? It is interfering with the matching algorithms at Ancestry, MyHeritage, etc. Or is there some other way to accomplish this? Thank you. Doris
  8. TMGU Find/Replace

    Thank you, Terry.
  9. In order to quickly spot all my immigrant ancestors, I attached an asterisk to the end of the person's first name. It also lets me attach the immigrant icon. Now, many years later, I know that this asterisk interferes with the matching algorithms at all the companies. I've been hoping their programming would eventually correct this, but the problem is just getting worse. I thought TMGU's Find/Replace facility would let me remove these asterisks, but I can't find how to do it. (1) How do I identify the first name as the target in TMGU? Or is there another way (besides manually)? (2) Has anyone found a way to accomplish what I want? And, oh by the way, (3) How to make direct ancestors stand out? I already use a pedigree icon in SS that shows up on person pages and in the index, but I'm thinking of the situation where one is looking at a person page for someone who has multiple children. To find the one child who is in my direct line, I now have to click on all of them to see their relationship to me. Ideally, I could use a flag that would cause the name field for each direct line person to display in color or italics or something distinctive, and of course that would carry forward via GEDCOM or transfer and on to SS, GS, GP. Thank you for any suggestions. Doris Wheeler
  10. Backup problem

    OneDrive, or any automatic backup, seems to be a major problem for many of us. If it runs while our files are open, they can be corrupted. Doris
  11. Dave, a Descendant Report will show all the descendants of a particular ancestor. If you're looking to find all DNA matches to one or more relatives you have identified as DNA relatives to this Native ancestor, you might try RootsFinder, a remarkable genealogy program with amazing DNA features. Check it out.
  12. Unlock product key

    Thank you, Michael!
  13. This cursed message is rearing its ugly head again every time I open TMG. Argh. I know there's a trick involving log in as administrator. I forgot how.
  14. List of People Query

    Oh my gosh. That's perfect, John. Thank you again!
  15. List of People Query

    I want to flag the Y-DNA tested males in my database and their direct paternal line ancestors where the Y line has been proven, then display an icon in SS to indicate this. I can easily attach a flag to each tested person that qualifies, but how can I select their direct paternal line in a Report\List of People query? Thank you! Doris
