    3. All, Further to yesterdays email, there are opportunities to move Rootsweb groups elsewhere. I am doing this with a surname group I admin, to groups.io  I 'could' do this with this TMG UK group, however, I feel a little reluctant to do so, given that  a) I can't recall the last post to the group b) The Master Genealogist software is defunct (and I no longer use it) c) There are Forums on the Whollygenes website. I welcome your thoughts Kind Regards, Neil TMG-UK List Admin

    2. Wendy Hamilton
    3. Hi Linda, The Birth Reg tag standard sentence is: [PP] birth was registered in the [M] in the [L4] registration district If you enter “September quarter of 1957” in the memo field and “Leicester Central” in the Town/City field your sentence should appear as: Her birth was registered in the September quarter of 1957 in the Leicester Central registration district. It is the same for the marriage and death registration tags. This is the way I enter all my GRO data. For the memo field, you can the data in any way you prefer. You could enter “Q3 of 1957” or “Jul-Aug-Sep quarter of 1957”. Note: L4 is town/city and L3 is village/area in the place names. In all cases enter the data without quotes. For the date field, I input "Sep 1957" so that the tag sorts after the birth date. If you wanted to use the date field instead of the memo field and village/area instead of town/city then you would have to customize the standard sentence. I think it’s best to use the standard sentence when entering the GRO index data. I make one exception. That is if I have the actual birth certificate for an individual -- then I customize the standard sentence to use the date field for registration data for that individual. My custom sentence is: [PP] birth was registered [D] in the [L4] registration district [M] The following example shows the resulting sentence from one of my narratives: “Her birth was registered 15 June 1859 in the Wells registration district by her mother, Hannah Francis, formerly Court. “ I enter the registration date in the date field, the district in the town/city field and in the memo field, I enter “by her mother, Hannah Francis, formerly Court”.

    1. Re: [TMG-UK] Sentences v9
    2. Hi - I have found that, where I am using the "Marr Reg" (and the similar ones for Birth and Death) then I need to just include the Registration District as Village/Area - leaving Town/City and County/Region blank. For entries I have made recently, I use the main tags (e.g. Marriage) with the fields completed (where I can) and use the GRO information as a cited source. This has two downsides - firstly the registration is not pulled out as an event and, secondly, it can be misleading where Registration Districts cross counties. However - for me - it is probably the approach I will stay with.

    3. Hi all While I loved TMG I never really used some of its very complex capabilities. I would strongly recommend Family Hostorian (a UK program). They have made a concerted effort to accommodate TMG refugees with special TMG input capabilities. Another great feature of Family Historian is that its data file is basically a GEDCOM file making it reasonably portable - and, even better, being a GEDCOM file, you can open it like a text file and actually read the data in a basic text editing app. This vastly improves the chance that you research will avoid technological obsolescence.

When it uses an obsolete form of text file (the twenty year old GedCom Standard) to store its data? My advice is carry on using TMG - you'll be able to do that for at least another ten years. Then you can move onto TMG's replacement, the "Historical Research Environment" (HRE), which is close to its first working version, which is open source and which is being written in the UK amongst other countries.

    3. Hello Pat, the Nicholson line is my husbands research.. from what I can remember they start around Hull - Kirkella, come down country to Leeds then go off in all directions. I shall ask him to take a look at yours to see if there is anything that rings bells. Since losing my tmg and gedcoms together with hard drive a while back, we have had to revert to the paper in the attic.. currently rebuilding and amazed at how much we'd forgotten.

I believe there is every chance there are still licences available for the last UK version of TMG i.e. V9.05 .....don't know what the price is but the 30 day free trial version is available to see if you like it ......and it restores older databases directly without the use of gedcom.
