This downloadable cheat sheet will show you how to get started with RootsMagic, giving you a crash course in using the popular software program. Inside, you’ll find:

  • Basic information about the RootsMagic software, including how to set up an account, create a new family tree file, and import a family tree from a genealogy website or another program
  • Step-by-step guides to editing/adding new information to family trees
