I created a name tag for each census year, and use the appropriate name tag
for the census year. So the 1860CEN tag will have a corresponding Name1860
tag. That way I can easily tell what census the name came from and which
years I still need to record. I never have a sentence print for the census
name tags, just use them in the census tags.

Any information I give that you can't find in your version of TMG 5.1 is
probably due to customization on my part.

I have started entering alternate names for use in Census Tags that
reflect the name as shown in the Census. These names will only appear
in the Census Tag and I do not want to have the name print as an
alternate name: "He was also known as Angus Gillies" or "Her married
name was Lizzie Gillies".

Rather than adding a - to the Nam-Var or Nam-Marr Tag sentences, I am
thinking of adding Nam-VarNP and Nam-MarrNP Tags with a global - in the

Does anyone else do this and are there any problems?
