RootsMagic has released RootsMagic 5, the latest version of its genealogy software for Windows, along with an update to the free RootsMagic Essentials software.

RootsMagic 5 includes more than 80 new feature and enhancements to existing ones. New features include:

  • Timeline View: Show a person’s life in context with events from his or her own life and the lives of family members.
  • CountyCheck: Confirm the existence of a county, state, or country on any given date from a multinational database, and correct place-name errors in your family database.
  • Research Manager: Keep track of research goals, sources and results for a person, family or place in your tree. “On This Day” List: View family events along with famous births, deaths and historical events for any given day of the year.
  • Media Tagging: Tag your images and other media with people, families, sources or places. (For example, tag an image of a census record with the people, families and places named in the record, as well as the census source citation.)

Learn more about the updates in a free “What’s New in RootsMagic 5?” webinar Tuesday, Nov. 29, at 5 p.m. Mountain Time (7 Eastern, 6 Central, 4 Pacific). If you’re interested, click here to sign up ASAP, as attendance is limited. (FYI, RootsMagic usually puts recordings of past webinars on its website for those who missed them.)

The free RootsMagic 5 Essentials contains many core features from the RootsMagic software, and the two products are fully compatible with one another.

RootsMagic 5 works on Windows 7, Vista, XP or 2000. It’s available online or by calling 1-800-766-8762.

New users can get the software for $29.95. Users of previous versions of RootsMagic and its predecessor, Family Origins, can upgrade to RootsMagic 5 for $19.95.

  1. Of course Sandra, thank you. My brain must have still been on vacation. Also, the announcement stated the webinar would be at 6 pm MT, but the registration page is now listing it at 5 MT. I’ve updated the post.
