Perfect, easy-to-use tool for genealogists of all levels

dead relative searcher

I love Roots Magic and have been using it from the beginning. It has everything I need to keep my findings and research on track. I have over 46,000 people on my tree and it manages that amount of information easily. And great value for your money! A great product that I recommend to my classes.

It does what it says


This app allows you to view your information from your device, but not change it. It would be helpful if it were more than a reader, but would allow corrections when visiting family across the country. Probably too much to ask.

Excellent Off-Line Roots Magic Reader


This app is designed to allow you to view your roots magic files off-line using your smart phone. It does a wonderful job. I love having all that information available in my pocket. I wish it could also edit those files,
as I rarely sit at my computer.
