RootsMagic 6 Certified to Work with FamilySearch Family Tree

I just had a conversation with Bruce Buzbee, the RootsMagician, about the RootsMagic capability to interface with the FamilySearch Family Tree.  [Note:  RootsMagic 5 and 6 were able to share data with the new.FamilySearch tree.]

Bruce said that RootsMagic 6 is now CERTIFIED to share data with the FamilySearch Family Tree.  The API that enables this is now in "Pilot" mode meaning it shouldn't "break" but there still some aspects of sharing with the FSFT that are not included - including sources, notes, and discussions.

Users can download the RootsMagic Family Tree Beta at  When the API from FamilySearch is completed, RootsMagic will update the software.

This is good news for RootsMagic users who have been holding off adding content to new.FamilySearch during the switchover from new.FamilySearch to the FamilySearch Family Tree.

Thanks to Bruce and his team for adding this capability.
