This is how we do it

For this month’s Genealogy Blog Potluck Picnic, we’ve been sharing stories about “how we did it.” The theme is open to ANY genealogy topic, as long as you tell us how you did it. 😊 #skillz

I’ve already shared how I got those pesky private ancestors off of my tree

And now I’ll tell you how I keep my genealogy information organized: I use the award-winning RootsMagic software!

I’ve used RootsMagic for several years, and I love it. The software is on both of my computers, and the apps are on my iPhone and my Kindle. I even managed to convince my husband to use it (he’s very stubborn), and now he won’t use anything else! 

RootsMagic does everything I need it to do:

  • Handles source citations well (great templates, too)
  • Not expensive
  • Imports and exports GEDCOMs
  • Creates awesome reports 
  • FamilySearch Certified
  • Syncs across multiple devices
  • Web Hints for FamilySearch, Findmypast, MyHeritage, and
