RootsMagic has always been one of the easiest-to-use family tree software available. Now completely rewritten from scratch, and available for use on Windows 2000, XP, Vista or Windows 7, it is also one of the most powerful.

If you have an earlier version of RootsMagic or Family Origins, and wish to upgrade to RootsMagic 4, simply provide evidence of your original purchase (see below for eligibility), and you can buy the Upgrade.

GOULD GENEALOGY EXCLUSIVE BONUS a 10% discount voucher which can be used on a future order, is included with the software purchase. This can be used on any other product/s from the Gould Genealogy product range. Conditions apply, read the voucher for full details.

UPGRADE ELIGIBILITY: Upgrade pricing applies if you have any previous version of RootsMagic or Family Origins. For this special pricing we will require evidence of purchase. A scan or photocopy of the original receipt, program disk and licence number or other evidence. If purchased from Gould Genealogy we should have a record of the purchase, but it is helpful if you indicate an approximate date of purchase so we can check our records.

The Main Screen - RootsMagic has five main views, plus a sidebar for easier navigation. You switch between the views by simply clicking on the tab for the desired view. All views are fully navigatible using either the mouse or arrow keys. Double clicking on a person's name brings up the data entry screen for that person. You can even open multiple databases side by side. View 5 or 6 generations at once on the pedigree view, or view 2 through 7 generations at once on the descendant view.

The Edit Screen - The RootsMagic edit screen lets you add an unlimited number of facts for every person (i.e. birth, death, marriage, occupation, religion, description, etc). If you want to add a fact type that isn't in RootsMagic's predefined list, you can simply create your own fact types. RootsMagic also allows notes and unlimited source citations for every fact. Every piece of information on a person is available from this one screen ... name, parent and spouse info, personal and family facts, DNA test results, alternate names, or LDS information. You can directly access the notes, sources, media, and more for every item.

The RootsMagic Explorer - The RootsMagic Explorer is the heart of RootsMagic's search system. The Explorer makes it easy to find and edit anyone in your file. Quickly search by surname or given names, or perform sophisticated searches easily.  Even find women by their married names. And you can easily edit any person in the search list with the click of a single button. 

Sources - Documenting Your Family History - RootsMagic provides a powerful source list which lets you add, edit, delete, and print the sources of your information. Simply add the source once, then when you add a fact to a person and want to document where that information came from, you simply point to the source in the source list. And best of all, the RootsMagic SourceWizard will help you write properly formatted sources regardless of your expertise.  Quickly and easily create sources as defined by Evidence!, Evidence Explained, or Cite Your Sources. You can even create your own source types.

Printing Reports - RootsMagic offers a large selection of printouts, all available from a single report dialoge. Pedigree charts, family group sheets, wall charts, 7 styles of narrative reports (where RootsMagic writes the sentences for you), numerous lists, mailing labels, calendars, relationship charts, individual summaries, and photo trees.  And if that isn't enough, RootsMagic even provides a custom report generator, so you can create your own specialized lists.  Since we can't possibly show you all the printouts, you can download a free trial copy copy of RootsMagic to try them for yourself.

Publish Your Family History - Publishing your family history has never been easier. The RootsMagic Publisher lets you combine multiple reports, charts, photos and narrative reports into a single document, and will automatically create a table of contents and full index for the book.  You can even add cover and title pages, copyright page, dedication, and more. Send your book directly to your printer, or save it to a PDF file or export to your word processor, to burn on a CD or email to family members. 

Create Spectacular Wall Charts - RootsMagic lets you create beautiful full colour ancestor, descendant, and hourglass wall charts.  You have full control over the positioning, size, colours, fonts, and other aspects of every object in the chart.  With simple mouse control you can resize an individualís box, or drag it to another location on the canvas without breaking the family links.  You can change colours of individual boxes, or change the font or colour of the text in the boxes.  You can even customize your chart by adding additional text, pictures, or shapes to the chart, and you can change the background image or colour.

Make Shareable CDs - You've worked hard to collect and organize your family history, and now RootsMagic makes it easy to share that history with your family and friends. Your Shareable CD will feature a custom home page with your own title, photo, description, and contact information, and will include a read-only version of RootsMagic to show off your data and multimedia items.

Map Your Family - RootsMagic 4 now lets you view your family on a map.  Simply select a family member from the list and RootsMagic will display the map (anywhere in the world), with pins where that person's events (birth, marriage, death, burial, etc) occurred.

Merging Duplicate Records - RootsMagic provides the most powerful and easy to use merge capabilities available.  RootsMagic will automatically look for duplicate individuals and display them in a list with the most likely matches listed first.  Simply click a button to merge the duplicate pair, or mark them as "not a match" so that they won't show up in any future merge sessions.  Plus, RootsMagic features SmartMerge technology to let you quickly merge all those "for certain" duplicates.

Website Generator - RootsMagic can generate professional looking web sites automatically from your data, in narrative format, pedigree chart format, family group sheet format, or a combination pedigree / family group sheet format.

Compatibility - Import directly from Family Tree Maker (version 16 and earlier), PAF (versions 2.x and later), Family Origins (versions 4 and later), Legacy (versions 2 and later). Full GEDCOM 5.5 support so you can exchange data with other programs.

Backup - Integrated backup and restore help safeguard your data, and now RootsMagic lets you backup directly to CD.

RootsMagic-To-Go - This all new feature lets you run RootsMagic (program AND data) directly off your flash drive. Thatís right ... not only can you have your data on a flash drive, but you can run the full RootsMagic program and your data directly from the flash drive. Are you going to a library or relative's place that doesnít have RootsMagic on their computers?  Donít worry, just use RootsMagic-To-Go to install RM4 and your data on your flash drive, and take it with you. When you get there just plug your flash drive into the computer and get to work. When you get home just move the data right back onto your computer.
