A friend of mine asked me to convert his database to TMG so that he can build a website with Second Site. The database contains 145,000 persons, and is remarkably clean, but contains many lengthy and informative research notes. TMG 8 spent about 20 seconds looking at the PAF and locked up. Importing the gedcom failed also, apparently because of the lengthy notes--the program quit when the project file exceeded 2 gb. Then I purchased FTM 2012, which cheerfully imported the PAF, with few warnings. I then exported the project file in FTM 2008/2009 Backup format. After unpacking that file, TMG 8.0 exclaimed "Error opening file C:\ . . . External dynamic-link library returns error "-4", VistaDB Level 1 Error 80040154h: Class not registered Any suggestions? This is a fine database that deserves its own Second Site website, I would hate to see it picked to death on Ancestry.com. Al Field
Disclaimer: I am useless at anything past a very simple filter - just can't seem to wrap my brain around them. So, can someone help me filter my dataset to produce a GEDCOM that excludes everyone of my generation on down? I know I can export a file with details for the living left out, but I want no names, just my own parents and their siblings on back. Thanks.
I have a need to upload one of my larger projects to a public site but I feel it necessary to make a reasonable attempt to protect the data of those in the project that are living, or at least not known to be deceased. When exporting the data to a GEDCOM file, TMGv7 is certainly capable of allowing me to automatically limit the tags and events for those whose LIVING flag does not have a value of "N". However, in addition I would like to alter the given name of those individuals to something like "Living" or "Withheld". Since there are over 1200 individuals in the project who don't have LIVING=N, doing this by hand is not an attractive option. Can anyone suggest a way to do this? Even adding a unique tag to individuals based on the value of the LIVING flag would allow me to throw a simple script together to filter the resulting GEDCOM file. I apologize in adavance if this has been asked and answered here before, but I couldn't find it in any of the searches I've done.
