Yep, and I often find the way I abbreviated it 10 years is not the way I do
it now. The "discontinued program" had a very nice source feature in that
every source included locations and surnames index fields. These were in
the form of memo boxes that would hold a LOT and could be searched. As a
result I can find all sources that mention "Montg" and "KY" or that contain
information about surname "Jones" or even surname "Jones" and locations
"Montg" and "KY". I don't need to remember anything about how I abbreviated
it, though once I find it I can change the abbreviation if I want to.
Also...the search would generate a clickable list of sources. Hoping some
of this functionality will be in TMG ver5.0.
