OK let me clarify a couple of points.
I am a dumb user who will probably always be a NEWBIE.
Software is a tool. It is to let me put data in and get the same data
out without the software changing it.
I do not use ROLES or WITNESSES, but yes some are built in and the memo
field uses them.
The ONLY reports I use TMG for are descendant narratives, and GEDCOM out.
I have relatives who have gone through multiple marriages, divorces,
spousal deaths, at least six name changes, adoptions, informal
adoptions, racial and religious intermarriages, and can be found in
maybe 11 countries. And no all of that does not apply to one person, YET.
I am not a typical TMG user and never want to be as I am not a
programmer and I do not want my data input to be constrained to
following the rules someone else wrote. I also believe that rules are
have to be slavishly followed but are meant to be broken as needed and
it is up to a programmer to figure out what I want and how to do it once
I give him an order to create software.
When people go to my website and ask me questions it is not because of
the TMG reports I post but because of the ones from the other software I
uses that TMG provides a GEDCOM for.
