Update on Approach using TNG

In July, I attempted again to use the new version 11 of Reunion as my database of record in place of Legacy. I spent a week or so mapping out "Practical Citations" in Reunion that would allow the transition of all Legacy sources into Reunion. But when I tested how they would import back into TNG, I still had problems with TNG showing images. So I have decided that my main database of record will continue to be Legacy as it has better database management tools, and printed report capabilities. My focus going forward is to update all of my data to have good sources, and will do this one individual at a time in my database. TNG will be used mostly to provide data on the individuals in the database, and I will not be as concerned as in past in providing event images since successive imports replacing all, just causes broken images links in TNG.
In the past week, I have spent time merging the data that had been added in the two Reunion attempts, and am almost finished merging them with past Legacy database copies. There will only be one Legacy database in the future, and only one TNG database. As soon as the merge reconciliation is complete, I will then start with my most immediate ancestors and work my way up the tree, and related families. As a person is completed, I will add an article to the Ancestors Pages area.
