The Master Genealogist (TMG) is widely regarded as the most capable genealogy program available.

 - Getting your initial data into TMG
 - Finding your way around TMG
 - Establishing personal standards for data entry
 - Adding or editing people, events, and sources

 - Customizing the program’s Screens

'This is a great introduction for new users! Terry explains complicated topics in terms a beginner can understand, and he explains the concepts as well as the specific steps to make fast, effective use of TMG. Even experienced users will learn from this book, particularly in the chapters about more advanced topics. Terry’s TMG Tips website is a great resource for TMG users, and now Terry has expanded that with A Primer for The Master Genealogist.' - John Cardinal, author of Second Site, TMG Utility, and other companion programs for TMG

'A Primer for The Master Genealogist is a 'must have' for the new user. With its easy to read format and multiple illustrations even those seemingly complex features and tasks are easy to understand. I wish I'd had a copy of this book when I first started using The Master Genealogist'. - Mark A. Cunningham, TMG user for two months

'Without reading the entire book, I was able to perform not only routine tasks but also use features that were 'fun', such as changing colors of entries. I also became aware of functions that I would never have learned about on my own.' - Judy Madnick, new user

    I ordered the book without the software (which was a bit dumb) but on flicking thru it it appears fairly comprehensive.

    Maybe having the software disc at back of book might be better.
