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’ 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 button
Let RootsMagic Find Your Family Online
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
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
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 for yourself

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.

What’s new in RootsMagic
- Release notes were unavailable when this listing was updated.
Last week there was a post on the RootsMagic blog about running RootsMagic 4 on a Mac. I’ve had this topic on my list of future videos for a while and this post pushed it to the top.
As the post says, there are a few options for running RootsMagic on your Mac. You can use a virtual PC program like Parallels Desktop or VMware Fusion, but those require you to buy and install a copy of Windows. Another option is to use the Windows emulator called Wine. I prefer a re-packaged version of Wine produced by CodeWeavers, called CrossOver Mac. It’s much easier to install! For only $39.95 you can run some Windows applications like RootsMagic on your Mac without the expense of Windows.
If you’ve wanted to run RootsMagic or are interested in checking out this fantastic genealogy software on your Mac, download the RootsMagic trial version and CrossOver Mac trial version, then follow along with this video which walks you through the fifteen minute installation of CrossOver Mac and RootsMagic 4.
Do RootsMagic, Personal Historian, Family Atlas, or your other products run on a Mac?
Yes – but with help. In fact, we have many happy Mac users of our software. However, all of our software is currently designed to run on Windows operating systems. That’s where “the help” comes in.
What do you mean by “Help”?
All Macs built since 2006 use the same microprocessors as Windows PCs. This means that you can install the Windows operating system on your Mac and run any Windows software. There area also other non-Windows options available.
How do I install Windows on my Mac?
There are three products available that allow you to install Windows on your Mac: Apple Boot Camp, Parallels Desktop, and VMWare Fusion.
All three install the full Windows operating system and allow you to run any Windows application on your Mac. You get the best of both worlds! All three also require that you have a fully-licensed copy of Windows to install.
What if I don’t want to install Windows on my Mac?
No problem. There are two products available which allow some Windows software (including all of ours) to run on a Mac without actually having Windows: Wine, and CrossOver Mac.
Will you ever have actual Mac versions of your software?
It is certainly our intention. We have many Mac users who would love this and we love to make our users happy. We’re just waiting for the necessary tools and technology to become available (which will hopefully be in the near-future).
Note: All of our software has been tested and confirmed to work on all of these products. However, we can only offer technical assistance with our own software and not with other products or operating systems.
