Everton's Genealogical Helper Magazine
For some years I wrote a short bi-monthly article for Everton's Genealogical Helper (now called Everton's Family History Magazine) entitled The Master Genealogist Tips. I intended that the articles provide tips to users and give non-users an idea of the capabilities of the program. The articles were current at the time they were written and were intended for the then current version of TMG. While many of the ideas are still useful, some details may have changed for later versions of TMG. This is particularly true of some menu option selections. Some of the articles that I have written are:
- TMG Tips (September/October 1997) Multiple Use Reports
- TMG Tips (November/December 1997) The Research Log and the List of Tasks Report
- TMG Tips (January/February 1998) Repeat Data, Dates, Primary Only Views, and Timelines
