Family Roots Publishing is offering a package deal of the RootsMagic 4 software (full version) and “Getting the Most Out of RootsMagic” a 336-page book for over 55% off. Normally $44.90 for the two items, we’re making them available for just $19.89 – the best price ever offered on the finest genealogy software & book available today! Better yet, the package is for the CD-ROM of the software and the perfect-bound soft-cover book – not Internet downloads. There is no catch to the offer. This is the latest software and book. No new version will be coming out in the next few weeks. In this case a deal too good to be true really is true! This offer is limited to the first 200 orders received prior to midnight MDT Monday, August 8, 2011 – so order now!
Mac Users are in Luck!
RootsMagic 4 is a Windows program, but it runs great on the Mac under Crossover. The only limitations found thus far are that you can’t import directly from Legacy or Family Tree Maker. You have to use GEDCOM. And since GenSmarts isn’t CrossOver compatible, you can’t run GenSmarts with your RootsMagic on a Mac. Beyond that, everything else seems to work just like it does on your PC. Crossover doesn’t require you to load a Windows operating system (as with Parallels), and it’s only $29.96 if ordered at rootsmagic.com/mac As someone who used Parallels to run my RootsMagic program, I can vouch for the fact that using Crossover is much better – it really makes running RootsMagic seamless.
Note that FRPC is also offering free shipping on all purchases over $25, so just spend a few more dollars on genealogy books, magazines or products, and the postage is free.

THE PROGRAM – ROOTSMAGIC
RootsMagic is an award-winning genealogy software that makes researching, organizing, and sharing your family history easy! Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced professional, RootsMagic is the perfect tool for you!
The Main Screen
RootsMagic has five 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 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, 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.
Sources – Documenting Your Family History
RootsMagic provides a powerful source list hatt 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.
Publish Your Family History
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.
Create Spectacular Wall Charts
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.
Make Shareable CDs
You’ve worked hard to collect and organize your family history, and now RootsMagic makes it easy to share that history with your family and friends. 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
RootsMagic 4 now lets you view your family on a map. 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 provides the most powerful and easy to use merge capabilities available. RootsMagic will automatically look for duplicate individuals and display 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. Plus, RootsMagic features SmartMerge technology to let you quickly merge all those “for certain” duplicates.
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. If you want to see some websites created by RootsMagic, click here to bring up a Google search of some websites created by RootsMagic users (remember that users can choose their own colors and layouts and may have modified these websites somewhat).
RootsMagic is regularly updated by means of free Internet downloads. Registered users, receiving the free RootsMagic News newsletter will be notified whenever updates are available. Users can expect quite a number of updates between full Versions of the software, at which time users are notified that a new version is available. Unlike some of the other commercial genealogy programs, RootsMagic doesn’t compel their users to purchase full upgrade Versions every year.
In short, what more could you ask for? RootsMagic 4 is a terrific program, which we heartily endorse
