Bring Your Data With You

When you upgrade to TMG, you can import your data directly (i.e., without GEDCOM) from a long list of other genealogy programs.

While TMG will also import data through GEDCOM v4.0 or v5.5, the direct import modules generally produce much better results and are strongly recommended.

  • extra-long place names

Easy for the Beginner to Use

The novice researcher can be productive within minutes. More powerful features and hot keys are gradually revealed as the user gains more experience.

A point-and-click interface makes navigation and common features easy to use. Data entry is made easy with repeat keys, macros, lookup tables, and other shortcuts. TMG's interface is designed to stay out of your way so you can concentrate on research!

Have It Your Way

While TMG comes ready to print dozens of predefined reports with no hassle, its powerful Report Wizard can also guide you through the easy steps to define your own! With access to hundreds of options, powerful filtering tools, and font control, you are in control and your reports are truly one-of-a-kind! And when you save your creation by name, you can generate the same report again later in one easy step!

TMG puts an end to monotonous automated "narratives." The Master Genealogist puts creativity into your hands by giving you control of every sentence in every paragraph! By honoring your preference globally or locally, TMG's narrative reports actually reflect your writing style!
