"I am taking a genealogy
course at our local library and when the leader mentioned that
Family Origins was defunct (2 weeks ago) I told him that
RootsMagic had taken the place of Family Origins. As most
teachers are alike - the leader quietly discredited my comment.
The good news is that last week he came into class and announced
that RootsMagic was the absolute best genealogy program that
he had ever run across and encouraged the entire class to start
using the program."
- June B.
"I ordered my copy of "RootsMagic"
Saturday at the AGCIG (Arizona Genealogist Computer Interest
Group) meeting where Bruce showed us what his new baby can do.
It is really wonderful, and if possible it is more user friendly
than his fantastic Family Origins, which I have been using for
the last 10 years."
- Barbara W.
"I have been an avid fan
of Family Origins for many years, and I never thought I'd hear
myself say this, but... I have found one I like BETTER!
No lie, RootsMagic is hands down, so much more sophisticated
than FO. Bruce has taken so many of the things that frustrated
me with FO and improved them (there still are a few things for
future versions, ha ha)."
