Tamura Jones Announces GeneAwards 2015

What a way to end the year 2015. Tamura Jones announced his GeneAwards 2015 and named the Best Genealogy Product of 2015: RootsMagic 7!!!!! That makes the 7th straight year for RootsMagic.

I work for not only the best genealogy software company ever - but have the best bosses and co-workers anyone could ask for! Can't wait for what 2016 brings!

Best Genealogy Product of 2015: RootsMagic 7

I hate to say that RootsMagic is still the overall best genealogy application. I hate to say that, because I'd like to see some other vendors close the gap and give them some serious competition.

RootsMagic users may feel somewhat disappointed by 2015; there were some updates this year, to both the desktop application and the mobile apps, but no major upgrades, and the long-promised native RootsMagic for Mac remains in development.

This is a Good Thing; software should be released when its done, and no sooner.'s announcement of the discontinuation of New Family Tree Maker sparked many special offers. RootsMagic was not only one of the first companies to make such an offer, but has already released two RootsMagic updates focused on improving its ability to import New Family Tree Maker GEDCOM files. The improvements are partly in response to Keith Riggle's discussion of FTM GEDCOM import issues in his Replacing Family Tree Maker series.
This timely focus on FTM GEDCOM import issues is the right focus; RootsMagic is doing exactly what a genealogy software vendor should be doing right now.
