While it is unfortunate to learn of the end of TMG development, I want to thank Bob Velke and Wholly Genes for the great software that they have supplied for all these years. I wish Bob good health, some well deserved relaxation, and lots of family time, as he mentioned that his health was one of the factors in him deciding to step back from the genealogy community. While the other genealogy software has made advancements, none of them has yet to equal TMG in my opinion. Your contributions to genealogy will be well remembered for many years to come.
The publishing of TMG's internal file structure and release of GenBridge to developers is greatly appreciated, and should go a long way to preserving users data by migrating to other genealogy software. In case others have not thought of this option, running some type of virtualization software is another option to prolong the use of TMG. I run TMG on a Mac running Parallels Desktop, and this should allow me to continue using TMG well into the future. Similar virtualization software is available for Windows to allow older Windows operating systems to continue being used, and this should also allow TMG to be utilized for quite some time if someone does not want to change genealogy software, or would like to wait for more advanced software to migrate to.
