Rootsmagic – free public beta

I know I haven’t been posting much, and I’m behind on my emails as well. :( The reason is that I am working on the yearbook for my youngest’s elementary school. The deadline is fast approaching, so I’ve had to spend a lot of my time on that. But I did want to make a quick post about Rootsmagic 4. It is currently in public beta — meaning it’s free for anyone to download and try out until March 31.

Now I have been a long-time user of Legacy Family Tree. I’m mostly happy with it, but I’m getting a little disappointed with the lingering bugs in reports with regards to printing sources. So I downloaded Rootsmagic earlier today to give it a try. Unfortunately, as I mentioned above, I don’t have a whole lot of time to really play with it right now, but I am hoping to test it out more during the free trial.

I’ll likely post more about this in the future. I’d also be interested to hear what other people think of the new Rootsmagic.
