Your program has always been the best available, since Ancester Quest. Proud to be a user and looking forward to what I hope will be the best Mac Genealogy program to ad to your honors. You are undoubtably the best programmer out there shown by your understanding of your used’s needs. You deserved these awards and many more. Especially if they had one that was for being the best user orientated programmer.
Best to you friend.

That is awesome on the awards when can we expect a moblie app for android? I love my roots magic program.

I absolutely enjoy using Roots Magic. Before I converted to it I was using Family Tree Maker. I had perhaps 6500 names in my database, when I got a glitch where if I clicked on two certain names in my database the program would completely shut down. I called tech support who informed me that they hadn’t encountered this problem before and their recommendation to me was to start over. With 6500 people!! I purchased Roots Magic, (it’s been about 5 years now) created a gedcom file of my database and uploaded it without any problems. I have never encountered any problems whatsoever when using Roots Magic and am extremely pleased with its ease of use as well as added special features. Whenever anyone asks what genealogy software I use I never hesitate to tell them about your product. Thanks Roots Magic.

Congratulation, Roots Magic for winning the two awards. I was part of the voting process.
After being with Family Tree Maker for over 8 years, I had to find another website to put my family tree on another website. I had a person taking my family and adding it to her family and we were not related in anyway.
Glad I had tried Roots Magic before this happened. I am satisfied with Roots Magic and no one has tried to take any of my family members to be their own.
