Migrating to 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.

Migrating From Earlier Genealogy Programs To TMG

From Ultimate Family Tree (UFT) to TMG

If you desire to convert UFT data to TMG, there are several factors you should keep in mind (Moving from UFT to TMG). You can also read the lead article in the August 2000 newsletter.

Additional information is on the RUG's UFT FAQ page.

From Family Gathering to TMG

Open TMG and use the Import function, which will accept either a Family Gathering project (*.PRO) or a Family Gathering backup file (*.SQZ). As recommended for all migrations, make a few trials, checking the options you have chosen to see if they give the results you desire, before making a final conversion.

Additional information is on the RUG's Family Gathering FAQ page.

From ROOTS V to TMG

Open TMG and use the Import function, which will accept either a ROOTS V project (*.PRO) or a ROOTS V backup file (*.SQZ). As recommended for all migrations, make a few trials, checking the options you have chosen to see if they give the results you desire, before making a final conversion.

Additional information is on the RUG's ROOTS V FAQ page.
