Hawkesbury Family History Fair – review

Jill at Geniaus has written an excellent review of the Fair that is worth looking at:


She attended Bruce’s morning demonstration and came to introduce herself to Linda and I at the TMG desk. Great to put a face to the name after all this time!

2nd Annual TMG Weekend Conference

24 TMG users descended on Richmond (NSW) for our annual two day conference. Eight presentations will be presented over the two days including detailed discussions on importing and using exhibits, DNA, utilising the latest features in Second Site v3, using TMG to store information for non-persons…plus many more.

Introducing …

My name is Carole Riley and I am the convener of the The Master Genealogist (TMG) Sydney User Group. TMG is family tree software published by Wholly Genes and we consider it to be the best and most configurable family tree software available. Sydney is in Australia and is the greatest place in the world to live!

I thought it would be good to have a place where we can write about our experiences and share them with others.

We meet every two months at the Society of Australian Genealogists headquarters at 120 Kent Street in Sydney. We also hold other events from time to time.
