This morning I created 2 more pages of Mom’s Red Photo Album, after not touching it for about 3 weeks. Last night I posted the album itself, to see if I could. (With my WordPress.com blog, I couldn’t post it!). Glad to get back into that task.
I also learned how to add images to my TNG database. Pretty simple, actually. This program really needs a manual! If I need help, I have to consult either their wiki or forum pages, where I may or may not find answers to my questions…
For whatever reason, my RootsMagic GEDCOM is easily imported into TNG, but the images are not. I have RM set to export images, but the images don’t make it into TNG. The name and info about the images arrive, but not the images themselves. Have I got TNG set-up incorrectly? Quite possibly, as I said there is no manual.
So my plan is this: add all data & images to RM, then as I complete each surname, I will export a GEDCOM and import it into TNG, and add that surname’s images at the same time. Having the online TNG database is great, but if I should lose my internet connection (ex: Gustav!), all of my data would then be inaccessible. Of, course on the other hand, if something happens to my real-time data, I have it all safely stored online. A fair trade, I think!
