Migrating from TMG

Note that this page is a work-in-progress...

These are a few programs that the RUG has been following as possible migration paths for your TMG Projects as well as from older genealogy programs that the RUG has been using.

Programs That Have Migration Paths From TMG

The RUG has identified the following programs whose developers have stated that they can import TMG data.

You can minimize losses migrating from TMG to RootsMagic: (1) Before importing TMG into RootsMagic, "clean up" TMG, and (2) After importing into RootsMagic, "clean up" RootsMagic. This procedure is outlined in "Moving Data from TMG to RootsMagic" at http://files.rootsmagic.com/TMGDoc.pdf
