We lost a valued member of our RootsMagic family recently. Learn more about Gordon and his contributions here.
Today is a holiday in the United States- Presidents' Day. But it's special for me in a different way. Today would have been my dad's 79th birthday. My father, Gordon Dixon Booth, passed away last month on Tuesday, January 13, 2015 at 7:31 a.m. He died at home, comfortable, and surrounded by his ...

Have you ever needed to know when you last edited a person? Did you know that RootsMagic tracks all of that for you?
You stare at the list of names you have entered into RootsMagic over the years, and think to yourself “I wonder how long it has been since I've worked on that guy's line?”. As you make changes to your data, RootsMagic keeps track of the date you last edited each person.

Very useful.  I hadn't thought I could make a column of last-edited, and sort as well.  Cool!

You’re looking at “Aldred, Mary” but you want to move to “Taylor, William”. Your only hope is to tediously scroll down through the list, right?

Today's tip might just save you hundreds of hours of unnecessary scrolling!

Where do you like to use RootsMagic's incremental searching?
You're looking at the index of people on the main RootsMagic screen. You see “Aldred, Mary” but you want to move to “Taylor, William”. Your only hope is to scroll down through the list, past thousands of names and 20 letters of the alphabet until you find what you're looking for, right?

Happy Pioneer Day!

Have you ever wanted to publish a map of your family history? Today's tip shows you how to do it with Family Atlas Genealogy Mapping Software.

Here at RootsMagic HQ, today is “Pioneer Day”, a local holiday where we celebrate our ancestors and the diverse peoples who settled this area. One fun project for Pioneer Day (or any day for that matter) is to make a map showing where our ancestors lived and how they migrated and moved about.
