I am sorry that Bob Velke s not well. In my opinion, he certainly spoiled me. When I heard that TMG was not going to be continued, I was most upset. However, I thought that I needed to try another program. My husband has used PAF, Ancestral Quest and Family Tree Maker. I am familiar with those programs. For myself, I converted to Roots Magic. I was NOT satisfied, and I returned to my TMG. For me, there is nothing like TMG. Roots Magic did have one plus. I was able to take my great, great grandfather and his descendants and plop them into another project. TMG did not have the capability. Later this year, I intend to buy your book.
