I’m so excited! I’ve been working with RootsMagic 5 for quite some time. But, I’ve been holding off to see if there would be an upgrade. Looks like I’ll be asking Santa for RootsMagic 7 for Christmas!
Some features that folks might be happy about:
- WebHints: New feature will check for matches and provide web hints from FamilySearch.org and MyHeritage.com
- Ability to publish “multiple online family trees” on the web with easy editing features
- DataClean: Helps you clean up data issues within your database. This includes NameClean and PlaceClean. I can see how PlaceClean can be helpful. I’ll be curious to see how NameClean works especially when one has a database full of foreign names.
- Problem Alerts: This feature will tell you if there are problems with the person’s information. This will be helpful for this arthritic genealogist who sometimes hits keys that she didn’t mean to.
I have never used RootsMagic6. So, I am not sure how many of these features are new or are revised. However, they sound good to me!
I bet get my letter off to Santa soon!
