Overview

The People Section contains properties that determine whether people are included in the GEDCOM file and whether full information is included for living people.

Properties

Exclude Living People

When Exclude Living People is checked, TMG to GEDCOM will not include living people in the GEDCOM file.

Living People Private

When Living People Private is checked, TMG to GEDCOM will omit most details for living people and their names will be changed according to the Private Names property described below.

Private Names

When Living People Private is checked, the Private Names property determines the contents of the GEDCOM NAME record for a living person. There are three choices:

  • Private – The NAME record for all living people will have a given name of "Private" and an empty surname. This is the default.
  • Private <surname> – The NAME record for all living people will have a given name of "Private" and the person's primary surname.
  • Primary Name – The NAME record for all living people will have the person's primary name.

Person Filter

Use the Person Filter property to select the people you want to include in the GEDCOM file.

The Person Filter property is applied after the Exclude Living People property. If a person is excluded by the Exclude Living People property, the Person Filter property is not evaluated and the person is not included in the GEDCOM file even if he or she would have passed the Person Filter.

For more information about the Person Filter property, see the Filters page.

Living and Deceased

Some logic in TMG to GEDCOM depends on whether a person is living or deceased. The sole determinant is TMG's Living flag. If the LIving flag is set to "N", the person is considered deceased. If the Living flag is set to any other value, including "Y" or "?", the person is considered living.
