RootsMagic Now Has Added an Interface to Findmypast

The folks who produce RootsMagic genealogy software have announced a major new feature: integration with The program previously performed automatic searches of both and 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.”

Special Offer
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.

This helps me make a decision as to what software I am going to purchase to replace my Family Tree Maker. Thanks for the information.


I have had a quick look at the FMP hints on a small tree of mine. I can’t see anywhere that the hints include matches from family trees held on FMP site. Are they included or not? I suspect not as you still can’t search trees from within FMP as a subscriber but I wanted to make sure in case this was a back door way of being able to do this.
Can anyone confirm?
