Compare our features with any other genealogy software, or better yet, download
our free version and take it for a spin. See
for yourself why Family Tree Magazine called RootsMagic, “Probably the best all-around
genealogy program, RootsMagic offers a winning combination of features for both
casual and serious genealogists."
RootsMagic has six 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.
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 is the heart of RootsMagic' search system. The Explorer
makes it easy to find and edit anyone in your file. Quickly search by surname
or given names, genetic lines, 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
With WebHints, RootsMagic automatically searches your favorite genealogy records sites including FamilySearch and MyHeritage for possible matches to your data. Clicking on the light bulb opens up a web browser with the matching records (some records may require a subscription).
The powerful WebSearch allows you to quickly search the internet for more matches.
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.
RootsMagic offers a large selection of printouts, all available from a single report
dialog. 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 of RootsMagic to try them
Publishing your family history has never been easier. The RootsMagic Publisher
lets you combine multiple reports and charts into a single document, and will automatically
create a table of contents and full index for the book. You can include photos,
notes, sources and other text in your 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 to burn on a CD
or email to family members.
RootsMagic lets you create beautiful full color ancestor, descendant, and hourglass
wall charts. You have full control over the positioning, size, colors, fonts,
and other aspects of every object in the chart. With simple mouse control
you can resize an individual’s box, or drag it to another location on the canvas
without breaking the family links. You can change colors of individual boxes,
or change the font or color 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 color.
