Roots Magic 5 Released

Roots Magic announced the release of version 5 in near the end of November. The cost is $29.95 for first-time buyers and $19.95 for those upgrading from an earlier version.

From the Roots Magic website, here are a few of the new features of the software:

Timeline View – put a person’s life in context with events from their own life and from the lives of family members.

CountyCheck – confirm and correct the existence of a county, state, or country on any given date from a multi-national database. It can even show you online maps of county boundaries for that date.

Research Manager – avoid “reinventing the wheel” by keeping track of research goals, sources, and results that you have collected on a person, family, or place

"On This Day” List – bring your family history to life and view family events along with famous births, deaths, and historical events for any given day of the year.

Media Tagging – tag your media with people, families, sources, or places. For example, tag an image of a census record with the people, families, and places mentioned in the record as well as the census’ source citation.

Plus over 80 other enhancements and features
