I'm a new Roots Magic user (3 days in) and I'm migrating my TMG project via direct import. I also have the weird _TMG_ sources, only my sources are missing a lot of information. Only the title (or perhaps abbreviation) and the repository show up. I'm willing to modify each of my 1500 sources (beats creating a new source & reestablishing 25,000 citations), but there are no fields for me to edit. It's like I have a skeleton source. I've followed the instructions in the TMG guidance document to click on other source types & back in TMG to resync the sources but it didn't help. Would this source merging where I create a mirror source for each of my 1500 sources work in my case where I have a skeleton source? [What I mean by skeleton: on the "edit source screen" the source title appears in the Master Source box. Underneath is a yellow box. Normally, the source fields are in the yellow box. Mine is just a big yellow box with nothing in it. It also doesn't list a source type.]
Also: some of my sources, which were source type "census-filmed" came over (for some odd reason) as Pension films source types and the information I had in the source fields in TMG doesn't show up. Did that information not come over or is it hiding somewhere, waiting for the proper source structure to pull it forward? [Sorry if that's a dumb question. I'm mystified by what's going on and how to fix it so I don't have to re-enter source & citations from scratch.]
I'm willing to restructure my sources in TMG since I can modify source types without losing the links to the events but I don't know what to change them to! I've played with converting one of my wills to the different types of will sources but they all have the same problem upon import.
