What version of FTM did you last use and import into TMG from? (Makes a
difference in the import issues.)

Meanwhile, my experience was that I had to re-enter or repair a lot of
sources, even after following the advice to import repeatedly until I
got the best possible import.

We can probably give you more specific help once we know better what the
problems are.

(As for Census, you will probably want to re-do that anyway, since TMG
gives much more flexibility. However, because of that flexibility,
Census is a mini-"life's work" of its own.)
