The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 6.0
Knowing one's origin and learning about one's ancestors in an important thing for many people, and RootsMagic is an application created especially for them. It can help them track and organize their family history with ease and at a very reasonable price.

This efficient program provides you with all the tools you need to create your own family tree.
You can enter a large amount of information regarding each family member, establish relations between your ancestors, print reports, create charts and perform many other tasks related to the creation of a family tree.

The application offers three display modes: Pedigree, Family and Descendents. Personally, I prefer the Pedigree view as you can observe a lot easier the relations between your family members and get a clearer idea of the structure of your family tree. The other two methods just show you a list with the names of your family members and don't offer you the same clarity when it comes to understanding what the relations between the descendants are.

Another advantage of using this program is the fact that you can back up and restore the created family tree whenever you like. However, there's a small aspect that bothers me: you can save the family tree only to the RMGC format (which can be opened only by RootsMagic).

To conclude, I think that RootsMagic is a smart addition to my collection of programs as it provides me with all the tools I need to create my own family tree and it simplifies the entire process of organizing my family history.

Pros

  • User-friendly interface.
  • Comes with plenty of useful tools.
  • You can back up and restore the created family tree.
  • You can add all sort of information about each family member.

Cons

  • The family tree can be saved only in RMGC format.
