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.

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 filters, see the Filters page.

Export Record ID

The Export Record ID property control whether TMG to GEDCOM exports the TMG person ID to a substructure under the INDI tag for a person.

TMG to GEDCOM always uses the TMG person ID as the XREF value on the INDI record. This property controls whether the value is also written using an additional GEDCOM record.

The choices are:

  • Do not export — The TMG person ID is not exported except as the XREF value on the INDI record.
  • Export to RIN — The TMG person ID is exported using the RIN tag.
  • Export to REFN — The TMG person ID is exported using the REFN tag.
  • Export to custom tag — The TMG person ID is exported using the custom tag defined by the Export Record ID Tag property.

The default is "Export to RIN".

Export Record ID Tag

The Export Record ID Tag property defines the GEDCOM tag TMG to GEDCOM uses when it exports the TMG person ID and Export Record ID is set to "Export to custom tag".

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.

Counts

The TMG to GEDCOM log file includes a section that indicates how many people were included, excluded, marked private, etc.

Example counts:

           People - Total:   29,739
        Excluded - Living:        0
        Excluded - Filter:   29,537
         Excluded - Total:   29,537

Count Description
People - Total The total number of person records in the selected dataset of the TMG project.
Excluded - Living The number of people that were excluded because the person is living.

This will be zero if People.Exclude Living People is unchecked.

Excluded - Filter The number of people that were excluded because the person did not pass the People.Person Filter.

This count omits people who are already excluded because they are living and People.Exclude Living People is checked. TMG to GEDCOM does not evaluate the People.Person Filter for people who are already excluded via the People.Exclude Living People checkbox.

People - Included The number of people from the selected dataset of the TMG project that will have an INDI record in the GEDCOM file.
Limited - Living The number of people that were marked private because the person is living.

This will be zero if People.Living People Private is unchecked.

This count may be greater than the number of people included.

Limited - Filter The number of people that were marked private because the person passed the Private.Private Filter.

This count omits people who are already marked private because they are living and Private.Living People Private is checked. TMG to GEDCOM does not evaluate the Private.Private Filter for people who are already marked private via the Private.Living People Private checkbox.

This count may be greater than the number of people included.
