RootsMagic is one of the world's leading genealogy software program. It makes researching, organising, and sharing your family history easy! Whether you're a beginner or an experienced professional, RootsMagic is the perfect tool for you!

One of the easiest-to-use family tree software available, RootsMagic is also one of the most powerful. See why professional genealogists and beginners alike say RootsMagic is one of the best genealogy software in the world. It allows you to make CDs to share with your family, run the software and data directly from a flash drive, includes integrated WebSearch, and has many new features in RootsMagic 6. All up it is a easy-to-use, well-supported, great-functionality program.

Here's some of the standard features that RootsMagic incorporates:
- Edit Screen
- add an unlimited number of facts for every person (i.e. birth, death, marriage, occupation, religion, description, etc. or create your own)
- Sources -
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.
- 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.
- Publish Your Family History
- 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
- you can 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.
- Make Shareable CDs
- you've worked hard to collect and organize your family history, now you'd like to share it. 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
- 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 automatically looks for duplicate individuals and displays 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.
- 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 feature lets you run RootsMagic (program AND data) directly off your flash drive. That’s 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.
