Pub­lisher: S&NGe­neal­ogy w. www.root­ Price: Free­up­date/£19.95-£49.95 Root­sMagic is one our favourite fam­ily his­tory tools, and ver­sion 7.5 is a no­table up­date in that it adds sup­port for sync­ing your tree with the An­ces­try web­site. This fea­ture is also sup­ported in the free cut- down Root­sMagic Es­sen­tial tool, but those run­ning the full ver­sion also gain ac­cess to An­ces­try’s re­vamped An­ces­try Hints tool.

You ei­ther up­load your Root­sMagic file to An­ces­try as a new tree, or down­load an ex­ist­ing An­ces­try tree to use as your new file. Once done, changes are synced be­tween the two while An­ces­try Hints will pop up next to ex­ist­ing hints from Fam­i­lySearch and MyHer­itage.

You re­view hints, then de­cide to ac­cept, re­ject or mark them un­de­cided – plus choose what in­for­ma­tion to in­te­grate into your own file. It works ef­fi­ciently and is vir­tu­ally iden­ti­cal to the ex­ist­ing Fam­i­lySearch web in­te­gra­tion tool, so is easy to pick up and use. It’s just a shame you have to link your tree to An­ces­try to use it. Use it for: record­ing your fam­ily his­tory on PC or Mac

You can now merge hints from An­ces­try into your Root­sMagic file
