I have taken the plunge and bought the gold license - just the app, no other stuff yet.
At this point I have 2 older FTW files with about 1000 people in each, with a few hundred overlap. I am planning on one Project, 2 datasets to start with. I have read most of the Terry tips. Time to try it out.
I started an import of one FTW file, and am at the Step 4: Tag Wizard stage. After some work I think I have the concepts.
FTW has a number of unassigned Tags that I need to either assign or allow creation of custom tags. Questions:
1. I am worried about the assignment to tag groups, as the TMG user manual indicates this cannot be undone. I want to take the time to get this right. The cremation example where it typically should be assigned to the burial group, rather than the death group is one I could have gotten wrong.
2. Some FTW tags are obvious as to what group they should be in.
3. For those FTW tags that may overlap with existing TMG tags, I expect that I can correct these tag assignments later in TMG; (once I know what is assigned to those tags - I don't know because I don't have FTW any longer and cannot remember my original assignments in FTW).
4. For those remaining FTW tags that are open to customization, and group assignment, are there any lists out there that have typical assignment suggestions? I did try some looking in the advised archives.
Subsequently added the resultant list of unassigned tags on import from FTW below. Note, I am not expecting anyone to solve my problem, just a tip in the right direction. There is also a good chance there is no data in any of these tags, so just letting it create custom tags for most may be the thing to do ....
