Just in time for the holidays, RootsMagic has just released Version 5 of their “award winning software which makes researching, organizing, and sharing your family history easy and enjoyable,” and reviewed in 2009 by Family Tree Magazine as “Probably the best all-around genealogy program.”
I love RootsMagic. I’ve found the software easy to use, really easy, and I am NOT tech savvy. As a genealogist, I’m very picky about writing and citing my sources and I’m happy with the ability in RootsMagic to create my own sources or use the installed template. RootsMagic also has a feature, “RootsMagic To Go” that gives you the portability of running the program and your data on your flash drive.
RootsMagic 5 Features:
- Timeline view for person and their family members
- Research manager to create and track research projects
- Filter for people view
- Enhanced multimedia
- Enhanced sources
- Enhanced to-do lists
You can get the full list of features here.
