The SCGS TMG User Group (TMG-UG) is a forum where users of The Master Genealogist® (TMG) software gather to discuss features, issues, and practical application of the “the gold standard in family history software” and its companion software, Second Site©.

The TMG-UG meetings are held at the Southern California Genealogical Society Family Research Library in Burbank. The SCGS TMG User Group meets monthly on the afternoon of the first Saturday of the month with the exception of holiday weekends and dates of special SCGS events.  Please check the SCGS calendar for updates.

Our meeting format generally consists of a meet-and-greet period, questions from new attendees, a question-and-answer session, and a presentation, usually given by Patt Ricketts, SCGS member and TMG user since 1997.

The TMG User Group is an interest group of the Southern California Genealogical Society.  Meetings are open to the general public.  There is no fee for participation.  Donations are gratefully accepted.

If you are a TMG user or are thinking about moving your data to TMG, why not join us?  Bring your questions about TMG functionality, importing data from other software, and “how to” with you and learn how TMG can meet all of your genealogical software needs.

The SCGS Library is not open for research during the meeting.

Please direct any questions to kinklector@gmail.com.

[CA-SCGS] Family Tree Maker Group 13 October

Southern California Genealogical Society
Family Tree Maker Software User Group – Meeting Notice, October 13, 2013

The NEW FAMILY TREE MAKER VERSION 2014 was released last month by Ancestry. What are the changes and additions?  Come along to the User Group meeting on Sunday, October 13. There are some structural differences for tree files in FTM2014. Cautions about converting from earlier versions will be covered.

On September 30, Ancestry announced the acquisition of FIND A GRAVE. We will take a look at a possible strategy for including memorials from this popular and helpful site as sources for facts in Family Tree Maker.

What about FACEBOOK?  Does this incredibly popular social networking site have any business being involved with your FTM tree file?  There will be a short discussion on this topic.

The meeting is open to the public; attendees do not need to be members of SCGS.

For questions, contact Dick Humphrey at rlh1335@gmail.com.
