  1. Very handy tool to have

    Posted by michelle borserio on 23rd Jan 2019

    This book is a terrific reference to have on hand.
    It starts off basic and moves towards advance computer users of the program. I can't see areas that aren't covered and I am a beginner at Rootsmagic7 and working through it.
    Explains a lot of time saving techniques and without it I don't believe you can fully comprehend what the program has to offer.
    Having the book makes it easy than trying to flick back and forth online, this way you simply flick a page to where you want to be.
    All written in easy to understand language and a terrific guide to have on hand!!

  2. It's Magic

    Posted by Caroline Moorhouse on 4th Jan 2019

    Bought the programme, watched the webinars, which were very good, but still found that I was referring back to them. Much easier to pick up the book, read the instructions and do at the same time. Easy to follow and very comprehensive. Put book (manual) and webinars together - terrific. Well worth the money for me.

  3. Worth the Cost

    Posted by Carol McCaul on 27th Apr 2018

    Easy to read, great tips. Great help for getting the most out of the program. I really like having a printed version of the guide. So many options to experiment with and make my family history research even more enjoyable. Prompt delivery.
