Genealogy software company RootsMagic has released Personal Historian 2, a new version of its software for writing life stories of your relatives and yourself.
The software creates an interactive timeline to keep individual stories organized, give context to life events and let you write stories in any order you want. Then it compiles the stories into a book with table of contents, chapters, pictures, indexes and more. You can print the book at home, edit it in a word processing program, have it professionally published, and share it.
- step-by-step wizards
- filtering and searching of stories
- a library of LifeCapsules—timelines, historical events, fads and memory triggers covering a variety of subjects
- importing of word processor documents, photographs and other data
- importing of events, dates and notes from your genealogy software
- more powerful publishing and output options
Many of these core features are in a free edition of the software called Personal Historian Essentials, which is fully compatible with the paid version.
Through Oct. 31, Personal Historian 2 is available for an introductory price of $19.95. Thereafter, the price will be $29.95. Learn more on the Personal Historian website.
