The folks who produce RootsMagic genealogy software have announced a major new feature: integration with Findmypast.com. The program previously performed automatic searches of both FamilySearch.org and MyHeritage.com for possible matches to your data stored inside your own RootsMagic database. As matches are found, a light bulb appears next to each person’s name. Clicking on the light bulb opens up a web browser with the matching records (some records may require a subscription). Now Findmypast has been added to the automated search capabilities in RootsMagic version 7.2.
As stated on the RootsMagic Blog: “Findmypast is a British-owned world leader in online genealogy. They have over 4 billion historical records from around the world with more being added every week. With more than 1,000 exclusive collections, Findmypast has records which you just won’t find anywhere else.”
To celebrate this announcement, Findmypast is offering RootsMagic users a 12-month World subscription with a 20% discount. So now is the perfect time to play around with RootsMagic and Findmypast and see how they can benefit your family history. Better hurry- this offer is only good through Thursday, May 19, 2016.
