Making careful Genealogists
Posted by Mr Roy G Hurlstone on 15th Aug 2018
Rootsmagic is a very good program.
Over the years I've used a few different programs.
It took me a while to get used to it and in some parts it seems a little clunky. Once I got used to it it became fairly straight forward to use,
I must say that the TreeShare for Ancestry is excellent. The program makes you check everything you sync which I find great because I don't import things willy nilly, making me a much more careful genealogist.
You can also check FamilySearch from within the program.
If you want a program that helps you with your online tree, this is the program for you.
Easy to use

RootsMagic has been easy to use with a simple format. Works with online sites like Ancestry.com well linking information without any issue so far.If you have used Family Origins software in the past then it will be very similar.
