This is the third post in a series of exploring RootsMagic 8, which was released on 30 September 2021. The overview post is at Exploring RootsMagic 8 - #1 - the Main Screens.

I started typing "Find a" and the selection of Master Sources appeared in the "Source" column. I chose the first "Find A Grave (website)" master source. Then I clicked the "Next" button at the bottom right of the "Select Source" panel:
Disclosure: I have been a paying customer of RootsMagic genealogy software since about 2006, and purchased RootsMagic 8 as an upgrade package back in 2020.
