RootsMagic version 4

As a dedicated fan of Family Tree Maker 2006 (though not 2008 or 2009!), I don't often find a family history programme that has the same flexibility or enough useful features to tempt me away from The Generation Network's product. However, I've just had a pleasant surprise in the form of RootsMagic version 4, from S&N Genealogy (www.GenealogySupplies.com).

The programme is extremely easy to use, has all the necessary charting functions, source citation fields, narrative report functions and more. The platinum edition, worth £49.95 comes with many useful CDs, including Scottish Landowners 1872-73, Irish Landowners 1876, an Armory of England, Scotland & Ireland from 1894, and English and Welsh landowners from 1873. There is also a 90 day subscription to TheGenealogist.co.uk which is increasingly becoming more useful to those with Scots ancestry.

The product was launched at WDYTYA Live and should soon be available online from www.rootsmagic.co.uk.

Worth having a look!
