The TMG direct import brought in my source templates.  The TMG and RM Source template look the same.  Not all the elements were recognized as elements though.  When the sources were imported, instead of picking up the data in that element, the element name was inserted.

 

I initially thought this was the result of the custom source elements I created, but some of the custom ones came in and others didn’t.  Since this has resulted in a loss of important source information, I hope the import can be modified to address this.

 

Example

TMG Source

Edward Dain household, June 22, 1880 U.S. Federal Census , Macoupin County, Illinois, population schedule, town of Brighton Village, enumeration district (ED) 106, supervisor's district (SD) 6, sheet 41, dwelling 198, family 301, National Archives micropublication . Viewed at www.ancestry.com <, [CD]>. Hereinafter cited as Stoerker, Conrad (#14) - 1880 Census.

Edward Dain household, June 22, 1880 U.S. Federal Census , [COUNTY], Illinois, population schedule, town of [TOWNLOCATION], enumeration district (ED) [ENUMERATION], supervisor's district (SD) [SUPERDISTRICT], sheet [SHEETNUMBER], dwelling [DWELLING], family [FAMILY], National Archives micropublication T9_232. Viewed at www.ancestry.com . (Document Source Number: [SOURCE DOC #]). Hereinafter cited as Stoerker, Conrad (#14) - 1880 Census.

 

This results in a lot of missing information in my sources

 

TMG allows for the creation of custom source elements.  These map back to the available source groups.  I’m not sure why some were missed.

 

TMG Source Template

[HOUSEHOLD] household,< [DATE] U.S. Federal Census> , [COUNTY], [STATE], population schedule<, town of [TOWNLOCATION]><, enumeration district (ED) [ENUMERATION]><, supervisor's district (SD) [SUPERDISTRICT]>, sheet [SHEETNUMBER]<, dwelling [DWELLING]><, family [FAMILY]>, National Archives micropublication <[FILM]><. Viewed at [URL]> <, [CD]><.  (Document Source Number: [SOURCE DOC #])><. Hereinafter cited as [TITLE]>.

Please open a support ticket and include a backup of your TMG database and your RM database. Then we can see what is happening.
