Age at marriage
elricks posted a topic in The Master Genealogist v9I have not haunted this board for some time, but I can assure you I am a seasoned user of TMG. Could someone please assist with this conundrum with the AGE of the Principles. In a standard marriage tag I use the sentence - [P] married [PO] <[PARO]> <[DD]> <[L]><, when they were [A1E] and [A2E] old><. The ceremony was witnessed by [WO]><. [M]> Note there are no witnesses entered for this marriage, The Captain does not have parents entered into the DB, he only has a year of birth not his birthday, and there is no memo text. I am confident these elements are working as intended, For the Bride the output is - She married Captain Thomas Maybee on Thursday, 28 March 1850 in Melville Street Chapel, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, when they were 32 years and 26 years, 9 months and 14 days old For the Groom - He married Fanny Cato, daughter of Joseph Cato and Frances (Fanny) Cox, on Thursday, 28 March 1850 in Melville Street Chapel, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, when they were 32 years and 26 years, 9 months and 14 days old. I change just 2 characters in the sentence to this - [P] married [PO] <[PARO]> <[DD]> <[L]><, when they were [A1] and [A2] old><. The ceremony was witnessed by [WO]><. [M]> This is the new output - no ages appear at all........... Bride - Fanny Cato married Captain Thomas Maybee on Thu. 28 Mar 1850 in Melville Street Chapel, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. Groom - Captain Thomas Maybee married Fanny Cato, daughter of Joseph Cato and Frances (Fanny) Cox, on Thu. 28 Mar 1850 in Melville Street Chapel, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. The name/pronoun use is not an issue, it is working as intended. There are a couple of issues I need help with. (1) I am trying to get just the year of the age of the bride and groom. Terry tells me (http://tmg.reigelridge.com/variables.htm) [A1] and [A2] produces the age in years for First Principle and Second Principle. He also tells me [A1E] and [A2E] produces the full age in years, months, days, but may not depending upon the date of birth and marriage as entered. As you can see the latter works as he says but the former does not. If there is no alternative, I can live with the exact age in my sentence but would prefer not to. I cannot for the life of me see why this would not work. Note that if either party had less information for birth date, the age is truncated as expected. (2) I want the ages to follow the order of the names. At the moment in both options above the Groom's age is first and the Bride's is second. When I access the marriage tag I can see that the Principals change depending upon my access point, as intended. Again I can sort of live with this, by rewording my output to The groom was... and the bride was ..... I would really like to fix at least one or the other of these issues, as both together just makes the narrative too clunky. For my testing I edited my sentences by deleting just the 2 characters. input and output data are cut/paste from the actual DB. This couple is an example, all other marriage tags are the same.
Marriage Tag Role subscript out bounds
Lee posted a topic in Older Products and VersionsAny idea why editing a Witness with a Role of 'minister' should cause a "1234 Subscript out of bounds" error. Reindexing, Repair, Optimize all have been run. The only fix seems to be deleting the Witness and then Adding them back with the same Role.
Adding a spouse and not getting marriage tag
Jeff Lovell posted a topic in The Master Genealogist v9When I add a spouse and I get to the add person screen, the marriage tag is on the list BUT if I fail to enter a marriage date then the marriage tag is not created and the new person is therefore not linked to their spouse. If I do enter a marriage date, then the marriage tag appears and connects the two people as normal. Anyone else experience this or have ideas on how to fix. Jeff Lovell
Eva Lamm-Ruben (Dana West Ruben) posted a topic in The Master Genealogist v9How do you enter a marriage of two people of the same sex? How do you enter the parents for a child of this marriage?
Same Sex Marriage - how to enter?
David C posted a topic in The Master Genealogist v8Is there any way of automatically (or manually) entering same-sex marriages, now that more and more states (and foreign countries) are recognizing them? Currently, the "Add Person"" button defaults to the opposite sex to enter a spouse. The program won't let me change the sex to "?" if any children are specified, or if a gender has been otherwise assigned by the program. If this isn't currently possible, is there any timeline for when the "Add Person" button will show "Spouse," and let the sex be specified? Thanks, David Coats
Alternate marriage sentence if date and place not known
afinab posted a topic in Sentence StructuresIs it possible to construct an alternate sentence under the above conditions? I know it can be done with roles, but was hoping there was a way to modify the standard marriage sentence, so the result would be the normal sentence, if date and/or place were known, but if not the sentence would be [P] had a relationship with [PO]. I am fixing up a donated database, where there are about 6000 instances of this. Changing to roles would be too time consuming. I have tried several variations, but all without success. My question is: Is it actually possible without roles? Thanks, Afina
