Roots Magic Logi
Hello, my name is Val Harris. I and Lois Rose are the coordinators of the RootsMagic Special Interest Group. We meet the first Monday of the month in the New Smyrna Room at the Sea Breeze Recreation Center, 2384 Buena Vista Blvd. at 2:30 p.m. There are no meetings June through September. 
RootsMagic is genealogical software which resides on your own computer (PC or Mac). It has a version for your smartphone or your tablet. It has features which allow you to search, find, enter data and sourcing from Family Search, Ancestry, MyHeritage, Find a Grave, Fold3 and others. “TreeSearch for Ancestry” allows you to integrate your Ancestry Family Tree, and your RootsMagic data.
RootsMagic offers several other related programs: RootsMagic Essentials (free), Personal Historian, Family Atlas, GenSmarts, Family Reunion Organizer, and Charting Software. We will help one another use these programs as well.
The group will help one another to learn and use the RootsMagic programs. You may contact me at or Lois Rose at, to answer any questions.

You must be a member of The Villages Genealogical Society to participate in our meetings.
