TMG locations are organized by fields that can be customized by creating unique place styles. The user enters location information on the Tag Entry screen, shown below:
The Master Style List can be accessed from the Tag Entry Screen. That Style list is shown in the clip below (you'll note that TMG's Name Styles can also be accessed from this Master Style List screen):
Label 1: Addressee
Label 2: Detail
Label 3: City
Label 4: County
Label 5: State
Label 6: Country
Label 7: Postal
Label 8: Phone
Label 9: LatLong
Label 10: Temple
New styles can be added to change the names of the labels.
TMG's Master Place List records all the locations that are recorded in a project. It's readily accessible from the program's top tool bar. A clip of TMG's Master Place List follows. Place information can be edited from the Master Place List.
Now then, not all programs store place information in the same way. In a test today, transferring information via GEDCOM from TMG to both FTM and RM, we wanted to see how a particular entry would transfer. For this test, we added a phone number to a residence tag of Annie Eliza Alexander:
Below is the resulting import to FTM. You'll note the address precedes the city, county and state, followed by added commas for the missing country and postal code. The entry finished with the phone number we had added.
As part of today's exercise, we also looked at GENBOX place handling. GENBOX comes preloaded with certain place information. Users create place information and use "higher place"/"lower place" designations to identify place parts.
Hope this helps. --GJ
