SPRINGVILLE, Utah. — November 25, 2014 — RootsMagic, Inc. today announced the official release of RootsMagic 7, the latest version of the award-winning genealogy software which makes researching, organizing, and sharing your family history easy and enjoyable. With this release comes an update to the popular “RootsMagic Essentials” free genealogy software.
Family History Made Easy
Family Tree Magazine said RootsMagic is “probably the best all-around genealogy program” and “offers a winning combination of features for both casual and serious genealogists.”
Throughout its 13-year history, RootsMagic has helped people research and share their family trees with innovative features such as moving people from one file to another with your mouse, a SourceWizard to help you document your work, creating a Shareable CD to give to family and friends, and running RootsMagic off of a USB flash drive when you are away from home. RootsMagic has also received numerous awards, including the award for “Easiest to Sync” from FamilySearch for their work in interfacing with that system.
RootsMagic 7 adds many new features while making existing features even easier to use. “This release includes something for everybody,” said Bruce Buzbee, president. “Whether you want help finding records, or an easier way to share your family history with family, RootsMagic 7 has something new for you.” New features include:
The industry’s only multi-platform record hints, providing automatic hinting from both FamilySearch and MyHeritage. Simply click the WebHint bulb next to a person’s name:
View the hint summary for both FamilySearch and MyHeritage…
Then click through to see the actual records.
Our all new accounts which let you easily publish and maintain multiple online trees. From a single screen you can easily publish, view, change settings, refresh, or delete multiple trees.
Your trees can be public or private (password protected), and since your new online tree is database driven, you can change settings (like privacy settings, home page title and description, etc) for your website without having to re-upload your database again.
Quickly find and fix possible problems with names and places. You choose which problem types to look for, and RootsMagic will display a list of all names or places with any of those problems. You can accept RootsMagic’s suggestions, or just part of them, or hand customize the place right from DataClean.
Compare any two RootsMagic databases for a side by side comparison. Easily transfer people, names, events, notes, sources, or media between the two files.
Plus dozens of other enhancements and features
