The RootsMagic blog post, titled "RootsMagic WebHints Now Support Findmypast" (4 May 2016), says:
"One of the biggest new features in RootsMagic 7 is our amazing WebHints™. RootsMagic automatically searches your favorite genealogy record sites including FamilySearch and MyHeritage for possible matches to your data. 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).
"RootsMagic is the first software to search multiple providers for matching records. And with today’s update (7.2), we are excited to welcome Findmypast to our WebHints!"
I updated my RootsMagic program last night, and watched as the WebHints "light bulbs" were added to my Pedigree view.
I clicked on the WebHints light bulb for my grandfather, Frederick walton Seaver (1876-1942) and saw:
I have "pending" WebHints from FamilySearch, Findmypast, and MyHeritage. If I click on the "Pending" numbers for each website, I can see the WebHints and add them to my family trees on those websites. I can also add content and a source citation to my RootsMagic database, but it must be done manually - it's not automatic.
I clicked on the Findmypast "Pending" WebHints and saw (after Findmypast opened in a browser window) and saw the three WebHints for my grandfather:
The three Hints on Findmypast are two marriage records from Massachusetts and the 1880 U.S. Census.
I already have these in my RootsMagic database, so I will attach them to my Findmypast family tree so that they will disappear from my "Pending" WebHints. The process is very simple - an Acceptance or Rejection of the Hint.
Here is the WebHints screen in RootsMagic after I accepted the three WebHints:
For some reason, Findmypast Hints do not appear for the 1876 birth of my grandfather, the World War I draft registration, or the 1900, 1910, 1920, 1930 and 1940 U.S. Census entries for some reason.
