Lumping and splitting is a little more complicated than having all your
datasets together. I only have one project for all my children's ancestors
and their descendants. I am the most extreme splitter you will find though.
Lumping and splitting has to do mostly with how you handle sources. Do you
have one source per household on a census, or one source per county? I have
one per household, with the source being how to find that household, and the
repository being the census microfilm roll. Most people just put that
information into the source information. I prefer having it separate,
because then I can see how many people are on a certain roll easily.

Subject: [TMG] Data set question -- I wanna lump
I'm contemplating comparing the merits of "lumping"
vs. "splitting." Right now, I'm split -- my information is
in separate projects by family name. I would like to try
a consolidated project, but am not sure how to
Can projects be imported into an "uber-project" as
data sets? Does that work with the wizard as it's
currently set up? It doesn't list files for import higher
than TMG 4.x, and I just updated from 5.something to
Or should I export each project as a GEDCOM and
then bring each back into the "uber-project?"
I'm so totally lost at this. I've been using TMG for a
while now, but only minimally. Or minimalistically.
I am beginning to go through GTMOOTMG, and am
finding it quite helpful, but this is still rather
overwhelming to my poor aging brain.
Thanks in advance.
