We report on the magnetic and thermal properties of a few TmTX compounds, where T = d-electron metal and X = p-electron element. In all these ternaries but TmRuGe the thulium magnetic moments order antiferro- or ferromagnetically at low temperatures. The specific heat data confirms the magnetic orderings and reveals the influence of crystalline electric field effects.
