I imported my TMG file using both native and gedcom import procedures. I had produced a number of source templates in TMG that were useful in TMG. However, they were not imported in either import process. One of the source templates is referenced over 100K times and so I do not want to start over to reproduce this one particular source in RM.
The particular source in question is the Drouin Collection that is found on Ancestry and is of the type database and images. RM has a template for Drouin Collection (microfilm) but that is not the correct format. I did find a template on the internet that was associated with Elizabeth Mills and that is the format that I adopted. When I imported my particular template using gedcom, it was assigned to a RM template named " Free_form" and while it contained all the relevant information, it was missing some parts that were recommended by EE (Elizabeth Mills). So I thought that I could edit the Free_form template, add the missing parts and I would have my 100K citations in the proper format. However, there is no Free_form source template in RM that I could find! So I am looking for a work-around.
I thought I would take the existing "Drouin Collection" template, copy it, rename it, and then edit it to produce the output that I had previously used. That would give me a new and useful template that I could use for future work. However, I would like to merge the actual data from my existing Free_forn template with my new Drouin Collection (database and images) template to solve the problem quickly and get back to my research and writing. Does anyone have any suggestions on how this might be done, including going back to my TMG sources template and modifying it so that it exports a properly formatted citation that can be read by RM. I welcome any suggestions.
