  1. Moving Parallels to new computer

    Something like this... https://forum.parallels.com/threads/old-mac-to-new-mac-and-parallels-desktop.343898/
  2. Place styles

    You never want places using the US style and the UK style in the same data set because of the place levels differences. Good tip about TMG Utility. See my comments two replies up.
  3. Place styles

    If you use a copy of the template project that I sent and import directly into the existing data set (that has US styles), the data should be imported using the data set styles. Tested and this doesn't work. Data Set Manager / Import imports to a new data set (not the selected data set) and that will use the installation default styles. Terry's suggestion of using TMG Utility (below) appears to be the only solution and that will require editing the Master Place list to shift the levels for the place parts.
  4. Place styles

    That's surprising. Your default, I assume, would be UK and you should be able to select the data set in the Data Set Manager and select the US place styles since they are "built in". Maybe a dummy person is needed. I can send you a empty project with the US styles selected. You could keep this as a template and copy it as needed for new imports.

  5. Place styles

    You can set the place styles globally in the Data Set Manager (File / Data Set Manager). If you do that in a blank data set and then import a GEDCOM, the places should use those place styles. Existing places in a data set will need to have their place styles changed manually in the Master Place List. You don't want to mix UK and US place styles in the same data set since you would have comparable place entities at different levels.
  6. Can't find missing exhibits

    Carl, You are welcome. Happy to help. Jim
  7. TMG-L mailing list

    Constance Chappell Horne wrote... I am sad to announce that Rootsweb is ending support for its genealogy email lists. I have created a new email list at Groups.IO here: https://groups.io/g/TMG-L To join, go to the home page and click on subscribe. Here is the official Rootsweb announcement: Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state. Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb Constance Chappell Horne TMG-L List Administrator
  8. Datasets vs. projects

    Sure. Keep in mind that a data set is a subset of the current project. Use the List of People report and the secondary output option. You will be copying the people in a selected data set to a new project. This process will not change the current project. The Subject will be a filtered group with the filter being Dataset ID = (the data set number). The Options / Secondary Output choice will be Create New Project with the project name and path in the field. You can tick the suppress output check box to reduce the steps.
  9. The error has something to do with copying the sources / source types linked to the tags used by the people being moved. I'd reboot the system and you need to revert to the backup that you made before trying the move.
  10. When you move your exhibit folder to a new drive or path, the external exhibits feature of Validate File Integrity will update the paths for all exhibits in the exhibits table. VFI can deal with all exhibits in one folder or with an exhibit tree or even more complex situations. It's a simple, quick and painless way to deal with this. If you have a exhibits tree and exhibits with the same names in different folders, TMGU needs to be used since it can update only the portion of the exhibit paths that have changed.
  11. Can Census Source "Lumps" be too big?

    This is how I have always recorded my U.S. Federal Census sources. Each source is based on the census year. All of the details are in the citation details. I have templates for the citation details so that they are consistent and would suggest that you do the same. Different census years have different templates based on the information recorded for the particular census year. Bottom line... I have no reservations about this method at all. It has served me well over the years.
  12. Can't find missing exhibits

    Carl, Send me the __I.dbf and __I.fpt files (letter 'eye') and I'll see if I can identify the two exhibit records. You can contact me by email by clicking on the link below... Jim Byram
  13. TMG 9 program problem

    This is a common Windows problem. You run some application (TMG, in this case) and the installer for some other application (Roxio, in this case) cranks up. With TMG, it's usually the Microsoft Office installer that gets involved. Go to Programs and Features and run repair for the Roxio application. If that's not available, uninstall and reinstall the Roxio application.
  14. Probable corrupted project

    John, Saw your post on the mail list earlier. The description sounds like real-time corruption by a cloud, backup or antivirus/anti-malware program. I'll write David to request the current project to examine. Jim
  15. Can't find missing exhibits

    To what are the exhibits linked? Citations? Use the appropriate list report to make a list of the items that the exhibits are linked to. Then open each and check the exhibit.
