Major News: RootsMagic and Ancestry Working Together

After the Ancestry.com announcement today, RootsMagic released this information:

The RootsMagic News said:

"Recently, the genealogy world was rocked with the news that Ancestry would be parting with their “Family Tree Maker” (FTM) genealogy software. Thousands of FTM users have since made the switch to RootsMagic. But the question everyone has been asking has been, “Will any other software be able to search and synchronize with Ancestry the same way that Family Tree Maker did?”

Today, we finally have an answer to that question- “Yes!” We’re pleased to announce that we will be working with Ancestry to bring these features to RootsMagic in the near future.
Read the full statement on the RootsMagic site - http://www.rootsmagic.com/ancestry/.  In addition to listing all of the amazing capabilities coming soon, there are a number of Questions that are answered by RootsMagic.

If you are a current RootsMagic user, this is a major improvement to the software capabilities.  I am excited.  I will have more commentary in the days ahead.
