logo - RootsMagicIt’s been a busy start to the year for the team at RootsMagic, having released RootsMagic 6 late last year (which you’d think would keep them busy enough anyway), they then exhibited at RootsTech last month which from what I saw of them was non-stop for three days for them, and they have released their latest Webinar schedule … AND they have also been awarded three prestigious accolades.

FamilySearch Family Tree Certified
The first of these is that the recent update to RootsMagic 6 has been “Share Certified” by FamilySearch for use with their new “FamilySearch Family Tree” system. [I know, I haven’t mentioned FamilySearch Family Tree before, so you’re saying what’s it about? Well, I’m still getting my head around it, but essentially it is FamilySearch’s place that you can put your tree online, and it is free … more on that one later!]

Anyway back this this post … this accolade means that RootsMagic is the ONLY software certified to share data with FamilySearch Family Tree! You can read more about this announcement on the RootsMagic blog.
