RootsMagic 5 includes more than 80 new feature and enhancements to existing ones.
New features include:
Timeline View: Show a person’s life in context with events from his or her
own life and the lives of family members.
CountyCheck: Confirm the existence of a county, state, or country on any given
date from a multinational database, and correct place-name errors in your family database.
Research Manager: Keep track of research goals, sources and results for a person,
family or place in your tree. “On This Day” List: View family events along with famous
births, deaths and historical events for any given day of the year.
Media Tagging: Tag your images and other media with people, families, sources
or places. (For example, tag an image of a census record with the people, families
and places named in the record, as well as the census source citation.)
