Here’s a breakdown of all the RootsMagic 7 features, with icons to indicate what’s “new” and “better.”
RootsMagic is Windows software, though you can use MacBridge for RootsMagic to run it on a Mac.
New RootsMagic users can purchase version 7 for $29.95. If you use a previous version of RootsMagic or its predecessor, Family Origins, you can upgrade for $19.95.
The free RootsMagic Essentials, a “lite” version of the software that has many of the core features, also has been updated. It’s fully compatible with the full version.
